FIRE!!!!…………………………………………………drill.

There was a fire drill at work the other day and it had me thinking of other fire drills I experienced.  In my school years there were two types of fire drills:  Those that were planned by the school administration and the spontaneous ones started by students tripping the alarm…

Some people take fire drills too seriously and some don’t take them seriously at all; I’ve been both.  One memorable drill occurred when I was at CFSAC one year.  I remember that word had leaked out that there was going to be a fire drill and when it happened we all came out half asleep and half drunk…going through the motions and counting the time to when we could go back to sleep.  There was a section of men from another company that were first out and fresh as daisies….they had obviously prepared…who were they fooling?  Nobody.

So who was taking it more seriously?  I think we were(don’t laugh!) because we were at our typical level of readiness; those pretty boys didn’t wait up every night dressed and ready for trouble, did they?  We needed our sleep.
