Does Their Fire Procedure Involve Soaking In Gasoline?

| No Comments

A local high school had a bomb scare today. The official procedure in this instance is apparently to go into lockdown - everybody's locked in their classrooms. I was all ready to file this one under Official Stupidity - why wouldn't you evacuate the building? - when I realized that it's a bit of a crap shoot. If the bomb's in a locker and it goes off while you're evacuating the building, well, 'Oops' probably wouldn't quite cover it. On the other hand, if the bomb's in a classroom...

Nothing was found and everything came out OK, except of course for the kid who made the threat.
