Re: What alarm do you have at work/school

whats the problem with ALICE drills? they're much more effective at practicing safety than hiding.

Re: why do we have to do fire drills once a month

That is why they never happen at lunch or during passing periods at least for me over here. If it takes too long to evacuate everybody you would have kids scarfing down their lunch. Its very critical especially at the elementary school level to eat a good lunch. Also if they gave the students that ...

Re: I found something cool online today....

They seem to rebrand a lot of CP/Siemens equipment, and knowing that CP used those mechanical horns makes me wonder if TorkAlert has a deal with the company.

Re: What alarm do you have at work/school

On my first day of school, I had noticed a interesting looking device located outside the staff office building facing the football field. It looked to be similar to the blue lockdown alarms (there was one already installed near it, so I assumed that maybe they installed two for whatever reason) but...

Re: What's the loudest fire alarm that you've heard?

The newer TrueAlerts are so much louder than the older models, especially on code-3. I can stand continuous TrueAlerts however which is weird lol.

Does it count if the system doesn’t play a message?
Mine does play one but the alarm would still be much quieter even if it doesnt.

Re: Should gas stations and convenience stores have fire alarms?

I think they would do perfectly well with that honeywell siren or a system sensor "smoke" alarm, but nothing else more. The only times i would consider a convenience store to get a system is if it's big enough. I don't know why a gas station itself would need alarms considering it's all outside.

Re: Fire, Lockdown, Severe Weather, Tornado, Shelter-in-Place, and other Emergency Drills for the 2019-2020 Academic Yea

Because of the new system put in place I'm gonna place my bet on at least 5 false alarms. They do drill/test in the spring but I'm not counting that. I remember sophomore year where the fire alarms went off almost every day in the first few weeks of school, but that was the other building, therefore...

How had fellow classmates reacted to their first time hearing Voice Evac?

During the fire drill on wednesday most of the girls were covering their ears before the speakers sounded, and when they did they were all like "wait what" and a few kids were like "oh, this isn't loud". I know my story is kinda vague but I wanna hear your guys'.

this ones more of a quickie but a sprinkler malfunctioned in the west building, causing the fire alarm to go off. I wasn't in that building at that moment but someone came over the intercom telling students and staff to return to the classrooms and such.
