Can anyone identify this?

I found this the other day at our local Asian buffet. It appears to be suppression related. Can anyone identify what this may be used for, or what it is?

Re: I'm so old I remember when...

In Kindergarten, our computers were Windows ME machines with CRT Trinitron monitors that buzzed like heck when you'd turn them on. Our telephone system was a Merlin Magix system. We still had a 1978 Station Wagon as the family car, I don't remember what brand. Possibly Chevrolet. I remember 9/11. I ...

That must have been fun to go through with them blaring as loud as possible and not synced together.

Re: Most Absurd Description of a Fire Alarm Sound

My college handbook says:
The alarm will be an unmistakable howling sound.
Later in the handbook it says:
DO NOT TOUCH OR PULL FIRE ALARMS! WE MUST REPLACE FIRE PULLS WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN ACTIVATED

Excuse me??
