False Alarm Fire Drills

Q: Can accidental fire alarm activations, such as burnt popcorn, be counted toward a quarterly fire drill requirement if documentation of staff response is received in regard to said accidental activation?

A: I would think so. A long as you evaluated the staff’s response; the building’s response; and the fire alarm system’s response, I would believe a false alarm activation of the fire alarm system could be considered the same as a fire drill.
