Burn, baby, burn

There was a fire drill today. Not that residents of The Shed were told - there are no alarms here, no fire wardens came to check on us or do a head count to make sure we were out safely, and when it was pointed out that the shed only has one door and all the windows are barred, the official & considered response was that a demountable building intended to contain eleven people was too small to warrant an extra exit.

Presumably this means they feel it would be more trouble to cut a door into the wall than to replace up to a dozen crispy-fried staff.
