Seriously, popcorn is probably the cause of about 50% of false alarms.

(The other 50% are people performing the monthly fire alarm test who forget to, you know, actually set the alarm to TEST before testing it.)

When was the last time we had an inactive shooter?

So, you think there's a shooter in your school - you have a phone and instead of calling 911, your first thought is to post to snap chat?  wtf is wrong with these kids?

Last weekend I cooked some popcorn (didn't burn it) when I opened the bag the steam went up and set off an alarm that was right above the microwave.  The hilarity was that nobody in the hospital knew how to turn the alarms off. We finished the popcorn before the operator figured it out.

I keep waiting for the day the DSM adds "social media obliviousness" as a disorder..

Symptoms may include feverishly laughing at memes, walking into stationary objects, angering friends and relatives while trying to engage in conversations, and referring to reality as your "second life".  Talk to kik your doctor if you think you may have SMO

They live in a country that intentionally makes it extremely easy for people to shoot at them.

Honestly, Snapchat and popcorn aside, I find this kind of heartbreaking. Whenever the fire alarm went off in my high school, we were ecstatic because it meant getting out of class for a bit and socializing with our friends. Now kids hear the alarm and their first thought is that they're about to be shot to death in their own classroom. Nobody deserves that.

At their age, I was partying my ass off and frying many brain cells and I still had better reasoning and logistical skills than these derps.  I'm actually really grateful that this technology wasn't available when I was in high school.

Only the fire department gets to turn off the alarms at the hospital I volunteered at. And the hospital would have to pay a bill to the FD for each alarm, false or not, not to mention the hundreds of hours of doctor downtime caused by each evacuation.

That hospital finally removed the last of the microwaves after the second mandatory evacuation of the specialty center building in a month due to something getting burned in a microwave. But oh, no, it wasn't done yet, they had one more that month from the hidden mini toaster oven that building services admin hadn't been told about. Somebody got fired for that one.

911 only goes to 911, social media goes to everyone you know.

If you need your immediate circle to be immediately aware of it, it makes sense so long as someone else is calling 911 at the same time.

Yeah, the last time I phoned 911, there was another bystander with his phone out. I quietly asked if he was recording the altercation, he said yes and asked if I had called the cops.

Fark needs a 'wtf' button.  How about calling 911 and maybe then worry about whether you'll get viewers and likes on social media?

You call 911, then 911 calls the school/responds to the call, it's delays.

If something is happening at a school and one of the kids blasts on social media that there's a shooter his friends will get that message. His friends, that are at the school- where there might be a shooter.

Ya know, so they can GTFO and get away from where the shooter is.

You're sitting in class, everyone's phone lights up "shooter in cafeteria!" Everyone knows to stay away from the cafeteria during an evacuation.

If the fire alarm goes off at work and an announcement comes over the PA "fire in main kitchen, avoid front entrance." You know not to evacuate via the front entrance.

Reminds me of the first time one of my coworkers set the alarm.  He punched in the code and hit "A" for arm.  In reality, "A" was the one-click Ambulance button.

We also had a stray cat who set off the motion sensors pretty regularly.  The SOPs for every department's closing procedure ended with, "Make sure the cat is out."  Because he'd wake up at 4am and want out.  When he hopped out of his bed, he'd set off the alarm.  Alarm company calls the police, police would call our emergency contract number, whoever was carrying the phone that night had to come over to unlock the building so they could search and verify it was the cat.  We got one free call a year and I think it was $500/incident after that.

My GF's daughter had an active shooter drill recently and they were instructed to stay at their desks and throw shiat at the shooter if he enters their classroom.

I tired explaining this to my daughter but teenagers and social media....well....911 doesn't even enter into their thinking. They seem to think, or at least her friends do, that a "snapchat" might be the last time somebody ever sees them rather than getting law enforcement involved, and that's important. I did hear one unverified story from her that a friend is afraid of 911 because she doesn't trust cops. Might because the kids dad is in jail and mom's a junky, but yeah. It's snapchat or nothing. Not even the school tells them to call 911 as they have a "STFU and hide" policy, which means nobody finds out whats developing until kids start dropping.

Guess we have to ban loud noises completely, or start passing out anxiety meds at break.

Not sure how effective that would be.
