Today, we had a fire drill in my dorm, and I live on the 7th floor of my building. They shut the elevators down and I had to walk down 14 flights of steps. I shattered my kneecap last week. They turned the alarm off when I got to the first floor. FML

  • elevators can be death traps in a real fire, and are reserved for the fire dept to use to fight the fire anyway.

    your RA/School staff should have been aware of your injury, and made a plan to help you, and any other resident with mobility/health issues to get whatever assistance needed to safely evacuate.

    try talking to the housing dept, or, if they are stubborn, contact the FD on the non-emergency line, and ask why the evac plan for the school doesn't address injured or disabled persons.

    if there is no plan, its a serious shortcoming that needs to be addressed. if they just forgot you, someone needs to get their butt chewed out.
