Below this point, and probably above it, there are a bunch of comments saying things like, "why would the doors close in case of a fire... FAKE!"

Not arguing the fact that it's fake, because he would have gotten more than fired if it were real (misuse of emergency services is a BIG deal... at least where i live); however, some fire alarm systems close the doors of the building. they can still be pushed open, but the fact that they're closed otherwise can mean a few things:
1.) Oxygen flow is cut off to the room (in most cases it's just slowed, but there are systems that will allow the fire to burn itself out... just gotta be careful opening the door later.)
2.) fires take longer to burn through a door than to go through an open doorway, effectively slowing down the fire.

Are you implying that this school values property over human life?
Geez...
User avatar #24 to #22 - areo0420 (11/28/2012) [-]
oh wait! I direct your attention to the part where i say "They can still be pushed open."
Reading: it's taught for a reason.

did i ever say the doors locked? They can still be pushed open. Ever had a door close behind you? Same idea.
Geez...

There's a phrase for this. We like to say "inb4"

Yeah, 'Fire Doors' are made to cut fires off, and generally they are sign posted "Fire door, please keep shut"... At least where I went to school in the UK.
They have a sort of lock on them that keeps them open (if needs must) but I assume the fire alarm will just unlock that and let them swing shut.

what fire alarm would trap everyone in a burning building?

Closed doors prevent fire from spreading, and some buildings have ledges along the walls made for safe evacuation.

who said they were trapped?

the doors can still be pushed open, allowing for escape and slowing the spread of the fire.

you probably have seen this in most buildings you've been in: doors that close themselves behind you. some buildings just have the "auto-close" in with the fire alarm just in case someone has disabled their "auto-close."

Side note: ever wondered why doors to big buildings (should) open out as opposed to in? I don't remember the year, but in Chicago there was a theater fire. the doors opened in, everyone pushed against the doors trying to get out, but they were pull from the inside. everyone died. Since then building with occupancy over a certain number are required to have out opening doors.

Yeah, I've seen it before. It just disables the electro-magnets that hold the doors open.

2001: A Space Odyssey? I never watched the movie and I still know the reference.

Yeah, at my school, when there's emergency of a fire within the building, we go ahead and lock the kids in their classrooms too. God forbid they escape the smoke and flames.

Its pretty common where I live. But the doors don't lock (the story doesn't say they lock either). its just meant to section off the fire in the building to slow it down. People can still push the doors open though.

So, in that school when you pull a fire alarm all the halls and doors auto close and lock.. Nice escape plan there

seems 100% legit
User avatar #27 to #2 - defeats (11/28/2012) [-]
they are called Fire Doors.
#4 to #2 - dabombmanater (11/28/2012) [-]
The stories fake. BUT for the sake of educating you. its very common in schools to do this. The doors can still be pushed open physically, its just meant to slow the fire. Also not sure where you're getting your facts from saying the doors auto locked.
User avatar #33 - Noonelikesanimal (11/28/2012) [-]
why would the doors close for a fire alarm. seems a tad counter-productive.
User avatar #34 to #33 - dabombmanater (11/28/2012) [-]
OP here. the stories fake I just made it for the lulz. (I know I know who would lie on the internet)... Anyway the reason doors close in schools (at least the ones ive been in) when a fire alarm is pulled is because it sections off the fire and slows it down big time. the doors aren't heavy and people trying to escape can push them open on there way out. Hope that made sense.

seems legit. good on you OP
