We Want Your Fire Alarm Horror Stories

Nobody likes it when the fire alarm goes off — they sound at any time for a number of reasons, from drills to burnt popcorn. Fire alarms present problems for those of us who like to keep our daily routines in order. However, fire alarms sometimes catch us when we least expect them, at the least opportune times, and put us in compromising situations.

This is where Onward State wants to hear from you! What is the worst experience you have had with a fire alarm while at Penn State? Whether it was in your apartment or in the dining hall, in the snow or in the rain, we want to hear your horror stories. Were you cramming for a final? Were you about to fall asleep? Former RAs, you are more than welcome to share reactions residents had when you scheduled fire drills.

If you want us to cover your tale, send an email to [email protected] Please be sure to include:

  • Your name
  • Why or how did the fire alarm ruin your day/week/life?
  • In which building did the fire alarm sound?
  • What year did it happened?

So what are you worst fire alarm stories, Penn State? Show me what you got.
