Re: break glass covers over pull stations.

I would be sort of surprised to see how long these have lasted because I would think that vandals couldn't resist at least smashing the glass. The one I saw was at an office.

The store is getting white ceiling-mount L-Series horn/strobes and remote strobes. They are replacing red NH horns on the support beams and white RSS strobes on the ceiling. All the old NAs are still there. They've started installed the L-Series NAs. Many are up however there are some backboxes with...

I went to an office today that had a Gamewell pull station with a break glass cover that had a metal thing attached to it to break the glass by the entrance. Near where the restrooms were there was another Gamewell pull station and a Faraday horn/...

Re: Peaking in employee only areas of stores to see fire alarm stuff.

Peaking in employee only areas of stores to see fire alarm stuff.

Do you ever peak inside the doors of employee only areas of stores to see the fire alarm NAs. I've been guilty of this.

Re: How would things be if Walmart stores had fire drills regularly like schools do?

I think stores might not want to have fire drills due to the fact that they would risk losing some of their shoppers who might decide to just drive away and go somewhere else. Also shoplifters would take advantage of it. Plus it would be a large inconvenience for the shoppers to have to evacuate the...

Fire alarms from the 1980s and 1970s sounding like scoreboard buzzers.

I have commonly seen the sound of fore alarms from the 80s and 70s compared to scoreboard buzzers. People say those alarms sound like scoreboard buzzers.
