Re: Fire, Inclement Weather, Lockdown, and Other Disaster Prevention Drills for the 2018-2019 School Year

They aren’t frightening since there is remote strobes in the classrooms. However I can agree they’re really loud especially when you’re walking right next to one (I don’t cover my ears)

It's the same thing as a 4903-9219, except the strobe flashes at a slow rate (24 flashes per minute).

That’s hilariously off code!
