Good afternoon John and friendly staff,
Fire drills where everyone knows it’s a drill drive me nuts, because nobody treats it as an emergency…you might know where to exit if no doors are blocked by fire, but nobody gets any idea of how people will cope if they think the building really is on fire.
I’m not saying that we shouldn’t have calm practice evacuations, but we also need "real" evacuations where only the chief warden knows it’s a drill…overly calm wardens are a dead giveaway.
Anyway, have fun with your Friday the 13th fire drill…you said the notice states that all staff are to evacuate…surely this doesn’t include Lawsie and the newsroom…networked dead air or beeping noises!
Have a great day John and staff,
