That's such a good idea. I used to be at a split site school, the current one has 3 buildings plus an admin building.

just out of curiosity, how many schools have sprinkler systems? I know the fire bell is not just for fires, but i mean in theory, that's more likely than terrorist attack / other danger, at least for you guys anyway!
We have 2 drills here, one for evacuate the building, and another for Lock-In: stay in and secure the room, lock the doors, hide under the tables. [I kid you not]. Imagine the problems we have when people can't tell the difference between the oh-so similar but slightly different bells! ARGH!

The school I attended only had one sound for the normal bell, fire alarm and lockdown alarm. So you just waited around till a teacher same screaming down the hallways or outside areas if it wasn't in class.

What's worse is that my office is really just a desk in a corridor near a fire exit, the most unsafe place to be in a lock-in. The last lock-in practise, my nearest neighbour with an office locked herself in the room and wouldn't let me in in case i was a terrorist!!

I totally agree. If there was a foolproof or even prefered procedure, it would be publicised nationwide. The fact that it isn't shows that it should be left to the professionals to do what they do best. The chances of the odd, unfortunate 'wandering' pupil being where the fire is would be a chance in a million.
