Sorry... it was late for me and I guess I used the wrong word. They close the elevators for general use during the drill. Good idea about the cane with a seat. Might be a good idea to get one.
I do recommend that you check out where the drill is. If it is in a lounge you can go a little early and get a comfy seat.
