"it is important so that everyone in the building can have, or know where to go so that they are safe so that no one gets hurt." and even at an early age, kids like gabriella cwerner know how important the drills are. "something like this can really happen, and can hurt people, and we want everyone to be safe." and by having a plan in place, both the teachers and the students feel a little safer.
