The apartment manager asked all of the tenants to come to a short meeting to learn about fire safety. I didn't want to go, but the manager said that there would be free food, and who am I to turn down free pizza?
公寓经理要求所有的房客来参加一个简短的会议，以了解消防安全知识 。我不想去，但公寓经理说会提供免费食物，而我无法拒绝免费的披萨 。
Apartment manager: Thank you all for coming to this meeting about fire safety. With the rash of fires in this neighborhood recently, it seemed like a good idea to talk about fire safety with all of you.
公寓经理：感谢大家来参加这次关于消防安全的会议 。鉴于近来社区内火灾频发，很有必要组织一次会议来与大家谈谈消防安全知识 。
I want to make sure we comply with the fire code, so I've installed new smoke alarms or replaced the batteries in the older ones in each apartment and in the hallways. The fire escapes are in good condition and there are fire extinguishers in each hallway.
我希望确保大家都遵守消防守则，所以我在每个公寓和走廊上都安装了新的烟雾报警器，并换了新电池 。安全通道很畅通，还有每个走廊上都有灭火器 。
Your job is to keep the inside of your apartments safe. Keep flammable items away from the fireplace and don't overload your electrical outlets. Any questions? If not, we're ready for a fire drill.
你们的工作就是确保自家安全 。易燃物品要远离壁炉，不要使用大功率电器 。有什么问题吗？如果没有，我们就准备一场消防演习 。
Nobody told me there would be fire drill. I'm guess I'm ready to stop, drop, and —as long as I can take the pizza with me.
没人告诉我会进行消防演习 。我想只要能带上披萨，我还是愿意立定、趴下，还有匍匐前进的 。
