I don't think I can record a fire drill there. Besides, the "Cerberus" fire alarms are probably either Simplex 4051s with the SAE retrofits or either SAE horn/lights. But if it ever happens, I CAN try and record a Simplex 4051 horn going off at my college. I think they are in continuous tone there, ...

Yes, it's the Edgar B. Davis School. It used to be grades K-6, but now it's a K-8 school. http://www.brocktonpublicschools.com/schools/elem/davis/images/davis-large.jpg This was one of the first places I've ever seen the Simplex 4050-80s, as well as the break-glass Simplex T-bars. That school also h...

Wow. I remember at the Davis Elementary School, a couple of classic Edwards pulls were used with the 4050-80s, but the rest were break-glass pulls. As far as I know, most places to use the Simplex 4050-80s usually have Simplex T-bar pulls.

7002T here has a Simplex 4050 horn on a 2903 light plate. Hope that helps a bit.

Anyways, I'm guessing since your junior high school had the 4050-80s, they probably also had the Simplex T-bar pull stations! (might be the break-glass ones, but I'm not sure)

I doubt that SAE light plate holds an HDC-24 fire alarm. It might contain a Federal Signal Vibratone or a Simplex horn or even one of SAE's own horns. Try to get a better look at it. The SAE light plate does hold the HDC-24 horn. It is exactly the same as Ben Schumin's SAE unit. I've seen those SAE...

There was a "Rocket Power" episode "Falsely Alarmed" where Otto thinks that if you pull a fire alarm at the Shore Shack when there's no fire, nothing happens. He grabs the fire alarm lever (which is a generic red handle with "FIRE ALARM" above it, it doesn't resemble an Edwards or Simplex T-bar) and...

I know, so I'm only going to describe my school's fire alarms ONCE, so everyone'd better listen up... The Field House building has all SAE horn/strobes... http://www.dan.calvinet.com/SAESpeakerStrobeonPlate.jpg ...as well as Simplex 4251 T-bar pulls. http://www.dan.calvinet.com/Simplex4251FireAlarmL...

At Massasoit Community College, my campus has two sets of buildings: five of them from 1972, and five of them from 1978. The 1972 buildings mostly have these really old Standard Electric Time Co. fire alarms... http://www.dan.calvinet.com/Oldfirealarmhornlight.jpg ...and these pulls. http://www.dan....

In "Yokel Chords" on "The Simpsons," you can see a Simplex T-bar pull station at Krustylu Studios. It seems that the T-bars are popular in Springfield!
