Re: Make Up a System (2.0)

Yes. Please do continue. I love putting these things together. They are my favorite pastime. It is something I really do enjoy. I love it when I see new posts because then I can make a new post. Also I love reading up about different systems people come up with. Anyway, this elementary school holds ...

Re: The people who make fun of us

Don't collect fire alarms but I do like to view and listen to them sometimes. The only time something that REMOTELY seemed like bullying came up was when I was on a (long since deleted) forum and admitted I was on a forum for fire alarms and one member said it was retarded. I won't give out his name...

Re: Fire Drills, Severe Weather Drills, Lockdowns, Evacuation Drills for the 2017-2018 School Year

My problem there is in the time it takes for the secretary to get to the PA and activate it, which in my high school requires using a phone and putting in an extension, people might already be getting killed. Any second is too long.

I worry that with announcing fire drills, if they go off suddenly and there is no announcement that people may stay in their rooms when it is a real fire.

Re: School Shooting

If that is why are they being phased out? I'm getting confused.

Re: School Shooting

Re: School Shooting

My middle school did fire drills during after school activities but they never did it during lunch or class change periods. My high school did lockdown drills and activated the alarms, but never had fire drills during after school activities. Honestly there was a LOT my schools didn't do. In 13 year...

Re: School Shooting

My high school never did that and I would wonder exactly how it would have went if they did. They never did fire drills during lunch either. If the fire alarm went off, it was usually because of a smoke detector being activated.

Re: School Shooting

Going with false. If anything, all the teachers and the administration I had in school bent over BACKWARDS to try to accommodate me. Also when we did lockdowns in high school, as I said before occasionally they would ring the fire alarms. Which probably wasn't pleasant for students that had to hide ...

Re: School Shooting

I still feel though that at every entrance point except the main office, there should be metal detectors that go off if somebody comes in with a gun. And lock all doors and only let people in if they say they are students and can prove it.

Re: School Shooting

Then that is a doubly huge reason why there should only be smoke and heat detectors within the school so there are no false alarms by pulling and killers getting ready to gun people down can't pull it to make their victims come out into the open.
