We just had our first fire drill in a few months here at the office. I don’t mind these, but I’m baffled by the process. The alarm sounds, and we are told to report to the elevator lobby on our floor.
There are easily 150 people working on my floor. They force us all to stuff into a 200-square-foot room that is about as far away from a fire exit as we can get so a “fire safety inspector” can tell us that in the event of an actual fire, we should use fire exits – not the elevators.
Now, I may not be an expert “fire safety inspector,” but isn’t that a serious fire hazard?
