I am in home We are required to do one per month, plus one tornado drill per month during tornado season. I tell the kids right before we do it, but we don't prepare ahead of time with coats/shoes/talking about it etc.
We talk about what to do randomly so they hopefully know when I push the smoke alarm.
Sometimes we play a "game" where I'll put pretend fire along one or two of the exit routes so they have to know which exit to go out of (basement, back or front door)
If your centers consultant came and asked for a fire drill demonstration, I'm sure you'd fail. I would think it's not even legal or safe to have tables blocking the exits that cribs need to roll through!
