April 6 - False alarm at OSH

On my way to class yesterday, I had one of those moments where I just happened to be nearby when something newsworthy happened (newsworthy for a campus paper, at least). Students were evacuating OSH because of a fire alarm.

The SLC Fire Dept. arrived and Capt. Marty Peterson stepped out of the truck. Am I the only one who sees this as a video set to some bad-ass guitar riff?

I spoke with Capt. Peterson, who informed me it was a false alarm. We walked around the building looking for the pull station that had been set off. He said it was most likely a student who wanted to give everyone a break from class. "We usually get these during test weeks," he said.

This was my favorite shot. Capt. Peterson signaled a class that it was safe to enter the building, but the instructor continued to teach class outdoors. The weather was nice yesterday.

I'm so mad that they cropped that photo. I feel like I need to design the paper too when I'm there. Frustrating. Sorry man.
