Danebrook High School: 2-story High school built in 1950

First system: (1950-1976)

NA’s: IBM 4030’s

Pulls: pull rod with 10-inch bells

panel: old Autocall system

Code: 4-4-4-4

Second system (1976-2000)
In 1976 the school went through a renovation and added a new gym and cafeteria while adding drop ceilings around the building. this renovation completely removed the old autocall system and installed a new system.

Na’s: simplex 4051’s on 4050-80 light plates

Pulls: simplex 4251-30’s

Smokes: 2098-9644

panel: simplex 4208 coded to continuous.

in the 80s and 90s some of the 4051s started to die and got replaced with simplex 2903s lightplates and 4903-9101 with 9838s.

Current and final system:(2000-2028)

In 2000 the 4208 was replaced by a 4100 panel along with all the smoke detectors from 4208 but kept the alarms and pulls from that system.

Na’s: Simplex 4051’s on 4050-80 light plates. some 4051’s were on 2903 and 4903 plates. simplex 9838s on 2903 light plates and 4903-9101 strobe plates. Simplex 4903-9219, 4903-9252, 4903-9426, 4906-9127.

That new school’s system sounds very similar to the system that will (probably) be in a new high school in my area (not made up).

For terminal 6, SIGA smoke detectors would be more realistic as FSP-851s only work on Notifier/Honeywell panels. They would not work on an EST system.

Great Wolf Lodge Chesterton UK
(opening later this year)

Stamford Garden, Stamford, CT

This system is a garden store located in Stamford, CT with an office area/warehouse in the front and the retail store located in the back.

I- Retail Store
This is a small shed built in 2013 as the retail area for the garden store.

Panel: Fire-Lite MS-25 + Wheelock Safepath (for evacuation alarm)
Pulls: Fire-Lite BG-12s on the inside behind Stopper II covers and one 270-SPO on the outside behind another Stopper II cover.
Alarms: One SpectrAlert Advance on the inside and a SpectrAlert Advance speaker + SpectrAlert Advance strobe on the outside (labeled "ALERT)
Detectors: SD355s

II- Warehouse, Offices, Etc.
This building was also built in 2013 when the store opened as a small office park. It became the offices for the retail store and the warehouse when the store opened in 2016.

Panel: Gamewell-FCI 7100 and a Wheelock Safepath for voice evac

Warehouse- this is not a full-size warehouse, but the size of a garage:

  • Annunciator: FCI LCD-7100 annunciator
  • Pulls: Notifier BG-12s
  • Alarms: SpectrAlert Advance speaker/strobes and remote strobes (located on ceiling and wall)
  • Detectors: ASD-PL2s

All lower level + the second floor (two spaces taken up by a small restaurant):

  • Annunciator: FCI LCD-7100 at building entrance + Fire-Lite LCD-80 at restaurant entrance
  • Pulls: Notifier BG-12s and some Edwards 270-SPOs
  • N/As: EST Genesis speaker/strobes (and some horn/strobes) and remote strobes
  • Detectors: ASD-PL2s

Attic and Crawlspace (there is just storage up here and downstairs):

  • N/As: SpectrAlert Sounder/Strobes
  • Detectors: ASD-PL2s

The MS-25 is actually addressable so the detectors are SD-355’s not 2151’s. The FCI 7100 is also addressable so the smokes are FCI ASD-PL2s

Small Preschool Built In 2007

Panel: Silent Knight IntelliKnight® Model 5700
Pulls: Silent Knight SK-PULL-SA
Smokes: Silent Knight SK-Photo (essentially a 2251-style smoke)
A/Vs: Gentex Commander 3, Electronic Tone (2400Hz), 15 Candela

System is coded to Temporal 3, using Gentex Sync from the panel.

Holy Family Catholic Church, Hopewell Junction, NY:

This church was custom-built in 1998 to standards set by the Archdiocese of New York. On the first floor is the sanctuary, cafeteria, parish hall, meeting room, and patio/backyard, which includes an outdoor pizza oven, seating area, yard, and pool. On the second floor are the Religious Education classrooms, crying room, and sanctuary balcony.

When the building was built, the panel was originally an EST2 with voice evacuation, the pulls were EST SIGA-278s, the notification appliances were Wheelock ET-1070 (with the LSM strobe) speaker/strobes (Integrity horn/strobes in the Rel Ed classrooms) and Wheelock RS remote strobes, and the smoke detectors were SIGAs. Outside, the pull stations installed were explosion proof T-bars and Wheelock speaker/strobes behind weatherproof enclosures. After an incident in 2012 at Christmas where the fire alarm system was activated due to the detector in the sanctuary being tripped by the incense and a false alarm being activated, the system was due for a replacement. Also, some devices appeared to be tired and damaged. Soon enough, some of the Integrities broke down and were replaced by SpectrAlert Advances!

A new fire alarm system was installed in 2013 around Easter, with all of the old EST system being completely ripped out and a brand-new Notifier NFS2-640 with DVC was installed. The new pull stations were NBG12-LXes. However, the pulls outside were new explosion-proof T-bars. The notification appliances were Wheelock E70 speaker/strobes (with the weatherproof equivalent outside), with Wheelock RSS remote strobes installed in all classrooms and bathrooms and a PA speaker in each classroom to play the evac message. Any non-voice portions of the church were upgraded to voice-evac. The smoke detectors were Notifier FSP-851s. All stairwells had pull stations at each exit and at least one notification device mounted on the ceiling before and after the replacement. The annunciator at the entrance is a Notifier FDU-80.

The system is due for a replacement this summer, with the new panel being a Gamewell/FCI S3, a Wheelock SAFEPATH SPMNS voice panel, and a LCD-7100 annunciator at the church entrance.

My GF’s church (and her elementary school) has the same name, but is in a suburb of the rubber city. The school was originally a combined church and school–a common trend among suburban Catholic parishes during the postwar era until a separate and much larger church could be constructed. I have no clue what the fire alarm system is in that building as I have never been there. but I would assume it was the same as that one public elementary school on the northeast side of the rubber city (go to Old School Fire Alarms’ channel and you will know what I’m talking about)

The next system is an indoor swimming center named Lucky Lanes built in 2008 in Yonkers, New York.

Originally, the building had a Silent Knight IFP-1000 and had no voice evacuation. The pull stations were Silent Knight PS-SAs, the alarms were SpectrAlert Advances, and the smoke detectors were SK-PHOTOs. Over time, numerous incidents occurred with the IFP-1000 system including random activations, children pulling the fire alarm, and the SpectrAlerts in the pool area not working in numerous inspections as the weatherproof versions of the Advances were not installed in this high-humidity environment!

The system was completely overhauled in 2019, with the system still remaining Honeywell, but the new panel was a Gamewell/FCI E3 and a FCI LCD-7200 annunciator at the entrance. The new pulls were MS-7s, the alarms were Wheelock E50 speaker/strobes (ET70WPs in pool area) and RSS strobes in bathrooms (excluding the locker/showers), and the detectors were ASD-PL2 detectors.

Medium Elementary School built in 2000

Panel: Notifier AFP-200
