must participate in fire drills. Fire regulations require fire doors
to be closed at all times. Fire doors should never be wedged open
and shoes, boots or any other articles must not be left in hallways
as they may obstruct the path. Deliberate interference with the
fire alarm system is considered serious enough to warrant expulsion.
