Schools should have fire drills because it teaches students to be prepared if there is a real fire drill. If there is a real fire drill then the students will know the drill and know where to go. Teachers will not have to assist students when there is a real fire drill. Kids should have responsibilities and not have to depend on the teacher when there is a real fire drill.
Yes, schools should have fire drills, because students should know how to behave in the case of an emergency. Even though it is not likely to happen, if there is an emergency, it is very important that students know what to do. If even one life can be saved, it is all worth it.
I believe that a school should do everything in its power to keep its students prepared for any and all severe situations. This ranges anywhere from tornadoes to fires, earthquakes, and even shootings. A school is a place where our youngest and most targetable people congregate. It is in the best interest of them and us that they are prepared for anything. Fire drills are an easy drill, once or twice a year, to keep our loved ones on their heels and ready to react.
Why would schools want to practice fire drills? I think it's a huge waste of time. Most of the time, they don't let us know when we're having it and it cuts into our class time. Most students know where to go if there were a real fire in the school.
It is like the boy who cried wolf. A boy decided to cry wolf just so that he could laugh at the farmers, who had to be inconvenient just to rush to him, like how lessons are interrupted just because of a non existent fire. In the end, when a real fire happens, they will think it is just another drill and will not come out, like when the wolf attacked, the farmers thought it was a joke and did not chase the wolf. Dont use a drill to play with students.
Whenever there is a fire drill, it comes out of the middle of nowhere, interrupting class, and sending us out in whatever elements happen to be outside. In fact, they tell us to leave everything behind, so we can't even get a coat on, putting a risk on for any condition that starts because of cold air or poor conditions.
Think about it: if there are regular firedrills, then everyone assumes that when the fire alarm goes off, it is just a drill. No one takes them seriously, and the more frequently they occur the more likely it is that when a real fire happens, no one will react quickly enough to make it out alive. I think schools should have one planned, announced firedrill, and after that if the alarm goes off everyone knows to GET OUT because it's a real thing and you will die.
