Back in season five of NBC’s The Office, they did an episode that featured a CPR class which was absolutely hilarious. The opening of the episode also showed the importance of having a fire escape plan that your employees know about, and that you’ve practiced it. I know that this isn’t a scene with CPR, but we covered it before, here: CPR on The Office (after the Super Bowl).

I hope that you enjoy this cautionary tale on having a plan of escape in case of a fire emergency. In the scene, Dwight Schrute decides that it’s time to see what people do in the case of a fire. He, of course, creates tons of situations that are a bit over the top, with some moments that are probably fairly accurate as well.

The full episode is titled Stress Relief.

Summary of The Office episode Stress Relief

In this episode, Dwight stages a fire in the office to test the office’s fire safety skills, but things go from bad to worse when Stanley suffers a heart attack, causing Michael to come up with ways to relieve stress in the office, including a comedic roast of himself.

CPR in Entertainment is a series based on rescue scenes found in both TV shows and movies. If you have a suggestion for a future entry, please comment below!
