A brief guide to buying football gear – Royal Examiner
You are a creature of habit. Everyone is, to one degree or another.
Every day, you go to work by taking the same path, the same door, the same route. And yet, in an emergency, when that road is blocked by fire or other danger, can you quickly find another way out?
The purpose of a fire drill is to make sure you know exactly where (and when) to exit a building in the event of an emergency. Yes, we know there are those who dodge exercise. But don’t let that be you.
The threat is real. In 2020 alone, there were 111,000 fires in non-residential structures, resulting in the death of 100 civilians.
Experience matters. According to the National Fire Prevention Association, people who participate in drills and receive emergency training respond faster, with better decision-making than those who don’t have training. Those who have already been in emergency situations also react faster.
Fire drill not only gives people experience, but also helps them act even when they don’t see the problem.
Seeing the threat is one of the reasons people go to safety. When people hear a fire alarm, they almost always try to find out if there is visible smoke or fire. If they don’t see any, they might not evacuate quickly. The problem, of course, is that the fire and smoke need not be in your immediate vicinity for you to be in serious danger. At the sound of a fire alarm, everyone must evacuate as soon as possible.
Acting with confidence makes a difference. If you hear the alarm, get up and leave in a calm and orderly manner. As simple as that. According to the NFPA, acting immediately and with confidence tends to prevent panic in others. People tend to share the experience of others. If one person is confused and panicking, it can spread to others.
