What drives me nuts

October 12th, 2006 at 01:30pm

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,

Regards,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart

    OMG!
    I was at the barber’s in O’Connor and he was listening to whatever radio station it is you’re referring to, as the guy on the radio, read out your email.
    I didn’t realise it was your email until I just read it then.
    I was amused when the guy on the radio said he didn’t think Lawsie would leave if there was a drill when his show was on.

    2CC (relaying John Stanley’s 2UE program), and I’m glad you enjoyed the coincidence of the airwaves!
