Drills We Actually NEED To Have

My kids’ school had a fire drill the last day of school.  I’m not sure they really benefitted from that one.  Let’s face it, few of us ever benefitted from the monthly fire drill at school beyond getting some extra time to mess around and maybe to push off a math test.
