Panic Button Variations

Those panic buttons in the high school cafeteria still beg the question: who thought panic buttons would be a Good Idea? I recently served as a judge for the Science Fair qualification show and found some variations on the theme.

One seems in good shape, although I don’t know if it’s been repaired:

Intact panic button

Intact panic button

Several have missing buttons, but the innards seem intact:

Buttonless panic button

Buttonless panic button

In the event of an actual panic, I suppose you simply yank the cage off the wall:

Up-armored panic button

Up-armored panic button

I cannot imagine what logic justified protecting one button and leaving the others to the tender mercies of the student population.

Our tax dollars at work, for sure…
