My son just told me that in the middle of classes today, an alarm went off and after two minutes of the teachers not even knowing what it was, they figured out it was a fire alarm.  All the students headed outside, and a fire truck showed up.  They were allowed back in the school maybe a half hour later.  Granted this info is coming from my 13 year old who is known for over-embelishing a story and has no sense of how much time has passed during an event.  I'm just reporting the news as I hear it.   ::)
 
Anyone else hear anything???

Sounds plausible to me.  Some kid probably set the fire alarm off but they had to evacuate to make sure.
When I was young, I wanted to be older.  This is not what I expected!

One would assume that broadcast of instructions over the intercom would accompany a fire alarm.

No, just a loud bell.  The teacher didn't know what was going on, so he opened the door, the bell grew louder and there was a bunch of other strange sounds accompanying it.  He still waited, not knowing what was going on.  He started gathering the students to go outside a few minutes later after he noticed some other teachers doing it.

Nice.  Great to know what capable hands the students are in.  What if it had been a serious situation?

Yeah, that was what I was thinking as well.  That's why I added that this was coming from my 13 year old.  I hope that he is over-embelishing the length of time it took for the teacher to figure it out.  He did say when the alarm went off, the teacher actually stopped what he was doing and said, "What's that?"

Also keep in mind that if some moron pulled the alarm, school staff may have been elsewhere and unavailable to "immediately" respond.  Over the years, our school system has done a pretty exceptional job of managing emergencies, etc.  Most important, we've yet to loose a single child that I can recall.  I always like to post credit where credit is due.

Of course...Again, I was really just seeing if anyone else's kids had mentioned this incident or knew anything more than the story my kid gave me.

There was a fire alarm at the school and there was an evacuation. School fires are among the things that I race off to routinely, but firefighters arrived and found nothing before I even had time to get my tie and coat on, let alone get into my car and get started down the road from St. Robert to Waynesville. That much I can confirm.

I am **REALLY** hesitant to start reporting results of fire alarms being pulled since it's likely to generate more alarms, but since this is already being discussed on the internet, I'll call the chief tomorrow to find out how he believes the school personnel responded and if they responded appropriately. I don't want to call him at 10:30 p.m. on a non-emergency issue.

(And yes, if any Waynesville firefighters can't get to sleep and are reading this tonight and want to call me to get this laid to rest ASAP, I think most of the senior personnel there have my cell number. I'll be up most of the night and you can feel free to call or e-mail. Or I can talk to the chief tomorrow if you prefer.)

Thanks DTM - it looks like my young eyewitness wasn't too far on his version of the chain of events.  I may make a decent reporter yet!

They have different tones for different emergancys, at least they did 5 years ago and even before that. The teachers should have KNOWN that that was a fire alarm. Not an earthquake alarm or a tornado alarm. I say, somethings up with that.

The teachers shouldn't even necessially know whether it is real, a drill, or a prank. They should just react to the alarm. Apparently there was a breakdown in the system if this particular teacher didn't recognize the alarm. Then something needs to be addressed. JMO

I just asked my eighth grader if he knew anything about it.  He said they were in the gym when the alarm went off, and they were the first ones outside.  He said most classes were out there right away, but a few came out about 5 minutes later.  They may have been on the other side of the school.  He said they were outside for about 25 minutes or so.  He doesn't know why the alarm went off. 
 
Was there a substitute teacher that day?  If so, they may have been unfamiliar with the sound of the alarm.  There are different alarm tones for fire and tornado so that the teachers know which emergency plan to put into action.

If the alarm sounds like the hand sanitizer on the fritz -- sounds like a broken speaker!

I guess we'll just have to wait for DTM to finalize his report to know what the deal was. At least I know my kid was pretty accurate in his synopsis.  And no, he did not have a substitute.

They should do a fire drill.

it ended up that they were putting new heaters in and the oil burning off was what set the fire alarms off

My daughter said the same thing... teacher didn't know what it was and they didn't leave the classroom until someone knocked on their door and told the teacher it was a fire alarm...
