Käännettävä sana (suomeksi tai englanniksi):
fire drill (suomeksi)
- An organised practice to prepare occupants of an office, school or other public building for evacuation in the event of a fire.
- any pointless, unproductive, useless, or chaotic activity (sometimes '''Chinese fire drill''', but this usage is becoming outmoded in an age of politically correct, political correctness)
- any chaotic, unexpected activity. (With the dropping of '''Chinese''' the phrase has also often lost its pejorative meaning of pointless and unproductive. In this way, ''fire drill'' is often used in the same idiomatic way ''putting out fires'' or ''fire fighting'' is used.)
- A rod which is rotated on a flat surface like a drill until it is hot enough to start a fire.
