Re: What are some things that the General Public misconceives about Fire Alarms that drive you crazy?

I am also guilty of that because in elementary school I REFUSED to go to the bathroom because I thought the 4903 strobes were alarms. Thinking back on it, I realize how dumb that was. :lol: My elementary school had no remote strobes. They had Wheelock 7004ts. The bathrooms either had a Wheelock 700...

"When bell rings call fire department."

Did anyone here used to think fire alarms were all only local and didn't notify the fire department when they went off? I did when I was younger.

I wonder if the panel is in trouble.
If there even is a panel
The store does have a panel in the front and a pull station.

Re: Strange fire alarm upgrade at the local Aldi storr

That Aldi store opened up in 2015. I remember when the store first opened. The previous fire alarm system with the Advances was only there for 3 years before the store underwent a remodel and changed the fire alarm system. Before the building was redesigned for the Aldi grocery store there was a fur...

one gray bell hanging from the ceiling in the back of the store, but mounted horizontally as though it were mounted to a wall.

Re: Strange fire alarm upgrade at the local Aldi storr

No they don't. The store is pretty small however and bells are loud so it can probably be heard throughout the store.

Strange fire alarm upgrade at the local Aldi storr

A local Aldi store just got a remodel and the fire alarm system was changed. The store used to have a drop ceiling and SpectrAlert Advances mounted on the ceiling tiles with Advances mounted on the wall in certain areas. With the remodel the store did away with the drop ceiling and now the store has...

Has anyone here ever danced to a fire alarm?

There was this time in first grade when they were testing the fire alarms at my school Wheelock 7004ts and the teacher said "let's dance".
