None of the situations that you descirbe are really of any relevance when there is a fire in any type of occupancy. If you have the ability, regardless of age, pull the fire alarm and get out of the building. If you pull an alarm and nothing happens, get out of the building and call for help from another location. If there is a fire, that is no time to teach or coach people about alarms. A fire doubles in size every minute, so seconds mean lives.How is it in a fire that a parent watched his son or a friend watched his friend pull the fire alarm?
Good advice by Alex but you lost me when you said a fire doubles in size every minute. A number of different factors would have to determine that. It is not merely an automatic thing. There is no proof that every fire doubles in size every minute.
It could be possible. We need to teach our children how to protect themselves. But that is a strange question.
