I remember the siren also and knowing what to listen for, but don't remember ever practicing incase the bomb was dropped. But I know people who to this day remember the terror they felt practicing for the crisis. I remember when President Kennedy was shot and how the whole time I was going home from the JR High down the alley by Carl Miller Park, and North Elementary to my house that the siren never stopped.
I also don't remember many fire drills, the ones I do remember are at Central Elementary when we had to go down those ricketty metal stairs. I always wished we had the slide that they had at other schools built during that time. My grandparents lived in Weiser and they had this metal slide from the top of the building to the bottom that students practiced going down for fire drills.
