So much better to have a solution that addresses the issue rather than chasing the unreachable goal of having perfect registers ready before you need them.
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.
I'm going suggest we hire this bunch.

Well i checked with the Business Manager and during lock-in everyone goes to the nearest lockable room with tables (for hiding under!) clearly no roll can be called so afterwards, there should technically be a fire drill, or return to form room followed by roll-call. I don't see that happening.
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!!
Anyone going back in without proper equipment would most likely be increasing the casualty count and adding to the work of the fire brigade. Having been in a smoke/fume filled room I can assure you that you will not be thinking clearly.
