    only had one so far in my halls (Southampton Uni/SouthHill) and it was a drill, but they were nice enough to make it at SEVEN IN THE FUNKING MORNING. Someone set off the fire alarm in Chamberlain (the big hall next to ours) for a laugh, that was pretty rubbish. anyway yeah, guess i'm pretty lucky.

    AH

    "...in the event of a fire, please leave the building immediately. Do not use the lifts. Do not run. Do not stop to collect personal belongings or post on bit-tech..."

    We've had one fire drill this term, at twenty to seven on a monday morning. Nice :grr: it almost started a riot, everbody was so pissed off. It was funny when this girl came legging it out to the carpark wearing only a towel, swearing at the wardens who'd decided it was a good idea to have the drill then.

    We've also had a couple of fires though...this Polish girl called Sabine who lives upstairs managed to forget she'd put some burgers in the grill, and ended up setting the whole cooker on fire :duh:

    My ex-gf was going to California State University Long Beach a few years back and was always having to go outside cause some dumbass tripped the alarm. Half of the time they were pulling the alarms on purpose cause it was funny. I often got phone calls at 3AM from a very pissed off gf

    omg.....areyou guys serious I never thought fire alarms even went off that often in my school here right now (im form 6) we have a fire alarm I guess at the very most 3 times a year, it's good coz you get severely punished if you set it off, firetrucks are automatically sent here i guess... :wallbash:

    EDIT: but then you guys are in UNI and these alarms seem to be set off in what must be ridiculously stupid hours I mean who's up at 3am making burgers :eyebrow: ... oh well we actually want more fire alarms going off, means we get to miss lessons :rolleyes: I have 4 out of 5 lessons free on my friday week 1 schedule :rolleyes:

    lol...were ether getting home from being out on the t00n or just hungry cos weve been up all night doing stuff.
    The firealarms in our halls are heat sensitive but not smoke so you can burn all you like as long as it dosent get too hot...the other stupid thing is that theyve now just finished fitting alarmed cages to the "break glass" buttons.
    :wallbash: So now we have an alarm for setting off the fire alarm!!!

    The only time the fire alarm went off here was during an announced drill at 20h10 last week. It was announced that it would go off between 19h00 and 20h30, so we were all prepared, no persons in the shower or anything.

    Next time the fire alarm goes off, I'm taking my shuttle with me though. It's small enough for that, and I won't loose 320gb of data in case the fire is close to my room and the firemen will fill it with water.

    worst fire alarm, was when i was in halls last year, we had a fire go off because someone had lit some paper, and it was a mates birthday, well was about 4 hours ago, and we had to carry him out. Problem was at 4am with too much alcohol in his system, he thought we were doing some really nasty prank, it took three of us just to hold him!

    Boy am i glad i chose to stay at home for 3rd year, 2 years of firealarms at insane hours was plenty for me.

    Best one was at 4am, some foreign students set the grill on fire and threw the contents into the bin which went on fire of course, my flat mate was the student warden for the evening, ran to the flat, put the bin out and took the bin out front of the building stoping the place from burning down.

    Of course he got in to trouble later for breaking the rules regardless of the fact he just saved a flat form burning down.

    The ones i hated were the wednesday tests at 1pm, the amount of times i got woken up by that one with a hangover and ran outside thinking it was real really is poor.
