The other thread made me curious, how many of you have ever had a real emergency in your room? I've only had one. I had a student with seizures, and the student had one in my class. It was pretty scary, even though I knew what to expect. I felt helpless since there wasn't much we could do except make sure everything was clear and s/he was breathing. We've also had other students with seizure disorders, but I haven't had any of them. We've had a few other incidents where a squad was called too. A school I interviewed with had a school shooting the year after my interview. It scared me to think I could've been teaching there, but I learned a lot after speaking with some friends in the area about what to do.
