My son is terrified of firealarms!

Hello all Moms,
I am Mukta, my only child is 4and half. He is so terrified of fire alarms that he doesn't go to the bathroom by himself, will always hold hand while walking through hallways, will not stay in a room alone or anywhere he finds a fire alarm! When there was a fire evacuation in his preschool, he did not want to go to school until several days later. Thank God that stage has passed at least and he likes to go to school now.
Do I need to worry about this? Are there kids like him?

Fire alarms ARE scary to young kids, because they are LOUD!!!

He needs to be reassured that, just because there is an alarm on the wall, it won't go off unless an actual fire is happening.

As far as not wanting to visit the bathroom alone, or walk alone...he's 4...some of htat is perfectly normal for his age.,
