|The aftermath of playing with the fire extinguisher|
On Tuesday, October 21st, 2011, at 1:30 am, some AUIS dorm students in Raparin district near to the new campus, called for help after seeing thick smoke in their dormitory rooms. The smoke was thought to be resulted from a fire.
Darya Ali, the dormitory supevisor who was called by the dorm students, drove immediately to the dorms.
Fortunate enough, the smoke was not resulted from fire, but from the childish act of some dorm students who had rushed the fire extinguisher.
The dorm students got angry over this act and asked Mr. Darya to act immediately against those who have done it. After a short investigation, it became clear that two drunk students had done that.
Mr. Darya, after speaking with the ones committing the guilt, promised dorm students to report this horrible act to the AUIS administration
Sarbast Majeed, an AUIS dorm student, told Student Eye that it is not enough to punish them.
"This is not the first time that we are destructed. We have come here to study and enjoy a calm life in the dorms. We want immediate measures against these acts,'' he said.
The false fire alarm caused great panic among some of the dormitory students.
Sarbast, who was also harmed by the false fire alarm, said that the dorms need fire escape.
"In the moments of panic, we realized that we don't have the most necessary thing at the time of fire or any other accident, and that is fire escape. We ask the administration to get us fire escape as soon as possible,'' he explained.
Mr. Darya Ali advised dorm students to be respectful to each other and not surpass others' rights.
"This is a place for respectful students only and there is no place for those who don't know who to act in a civilized way with their fellow dorm mates,'' he emphasized.
