Fire drills in the sixth hour of the morning

Posted by Craig Kanalley on 9/19/2008
Never a fun thing.

Wailing sirens, flashing lights, and that obnoxious alarm clock-like noise, there's little to be happy about when the fire alarm sounds in the middle of the night.

I experienced this at Fisher before and now I've experienced it in Chicago. Our building was evacuated shortly after 6 this morning. I journeyed down what seemed like endless flights of stairs without any contacts in and the first clothes I could find on my body. I forgot a jacket along the way and it was rather chilly out, I soon learned.

We couldn't re-enter the building until it had been completely evacuated, and when all was said and done, it was a good 30 minutes to an hour before we were able to go back up to our rooms.

I tried to find the positives of this event. Hopefully there won't be another for some time?
