If it's a drill, they'll only be outside for a minute or so at most.

If it's an actual emergency situation, we'd evacuate to the General Store down the street where we can meet and wait for parents to pick up. Either way, the kids won't be out in the cold for hours on end, and even if they are, it's not going to kill them.

Smoke inhalation? Second and third degree burns?

Yeah, that could kill 'em.
I live in Canada so I get it! We always evacuate the kids to a nearby building. In one centre it was an apartment building and in another it was a high school. We wouldn’t go there EVERY time there was a drill, because the main problem is getting everyone out in time, but we did practice going there a few times a year.
