#FireAlarmSelfie

#FireAlarmSelfie

March 6, 2019

With the blaring of the fire alarm becoming an increasingly common occurrence at the school, many have found a way to make light of the disruptive situation in the form of the #FireAlarmSelfie. Since 2017, someone, or a group of people, have been pulling the fire alarms for no reason, consuming vital classroom time. To some, perhaps, the pulled fire alarm is a savior from a test or a project in class, but to the vast majority, it is a nuisance. When pulled, the fire alarm sends a signal to the fire department that there is an emergency, resulting in firefighters speeding to campus to discover yet again that there is no fire. Moreover, every time the alarm is pulled, the school has to pay money to the fire department, as well as waste their time that could be spent responding to real emergencies. The pulled fire alarm, that to many is just a fact of life on campus, depletes from funds that could go to athletics, school supplies, and events. Spanish teacher Kim Fowler explains her opinion on the frequent disruptions.
