Ways to improve the world, number 32 in an occasional series

Rather than having a loud, piercing, shrill ‘eeee-oowwww’ nose for the firm alarm that everybody just covers their ears and ignores unless somebody rungs through the office on fire, replace it with a piece on Ennio Morricone music. Preferably The Man With The Harmonica – the bit that announces Charles Bronson’s character in Once Upon A Time In The West.

The palpable sense of menace would have everybody sitting up on edge in the knowledge something very nasty was about to happen in about 20 frames time. There’d be no panic either, as people would make their way slowly, quietly and nervously to the emergency exits with the haunting tones of menace in their ears.

If Charles Bronson could be employed to appear for genuine fires, that would ensure everybody knew things were serious.

I may be slightly too in thrall to spaghetti westerns.
