Well, some more pics that I haven’t gotten the chance to upload in awhile. First, we’ll start off with some more pics from my school.
-Looking through old yearbooks, I found some pictures with the alarms in the background, and learned that the fire alarms at my high school are all original. I doubt the panel ( An Edwards 6500) is not the original one, it would probably be the second one installed. My school has 42 fire bells total, and about 20 of them are original (installed in 1963). I’m surprised these bells still work strong after 50 years of service, and fire drills.
-This is from behind the chapel in my school. It used to be an all boys seminary, and we do have a rather large chapel, about the size of a small church. Behind the chapel is where the priests used to live. Pictured here is the hallway in between the 2 rooms, where the exit is. There is an Edwards Adaptabel and an Edwards 270-SPO. These alarms seem to be the ‘more in shape’ alarms, as they are in a spot that is rarely occupied. Also pictured, a fire hose.
-From the cafeteria in my school, there is another picture of an Edwards Adaptabel and an Edwards 270-SPO under each other, a more common sight in the original part of the building. The other alarm pictured is the other bell in the cafeteria, which is a Newer Edwards Adaptabel.
-This is the library of my school, and in here there is one Edwards 270-SPO, A newer Edwards adaptabel, and one of the older ones as well.
Here is a video of one of the fire drills we had, where I was in the library at the time it happened. Also there is an Edwards smoke pictured.
-The first picture is of a lone pull in one of the mechanical rooms in the school. The next 4 are from an auto shop in my school (which was used as a religion class one year). This class is not used often, mostly for storage. The main auto shop has that Edwards 270-SPO pictured. The other one is the only place in the school where you’ll be able to find those Mirtone pulls. That auto shop also has an Edwards 10" Adaptabel.
-This next set of pics were taken at a local church. The system consists of Edwards 10" Adaptabels, Edwards 270-SPO pulls, and the panel, an EST 6616 (i think).
-From a hotel in Toronto I stayed at, a voice evacuation fire alarm system. This consists of System Sensor speakers and Simplex lifealarm speakers, Simplex T-Bars, Simplex smokes, and I would say a big FA panel.
-From a school in my city, a Simplex system, with Simplex -9838s and Simplex T-Bars. Also pictured is the former bell system, and a fire hose.
-From a restaurant in my city, a newer system, with what I think to be those newer Mircom horn/strobes, and a smoke detector.
-This was taken at a newer french immersion high school that was just built in my city, which seems to have a Mircom system. There is ceiling mount horn/strobes in the halls, and in the gym, there is these wall mount horn/strobes.
-Here, from the college in my city, there is a Ceiling mount horn/strobe which is wall mounted, a Honeywell dual action pull station, and a smoke detector.
-Lastly, this is the FA system at my work! The alarms are a variety of bells, The main lobby has an Edwards 10" adaptabel, one side of the restaurant has an Edwards 6" adaptabel, The other side has 2 6" Mircom bells, as well as the staff room has a Mircom 6" Bell. The pulls also vary. There is 2 Notifier pulls, one in the kitchen and one in the dining room, 2 Mirtone 73303 pulls, one in the staff room and one in the lobby, and an Edwards 270-SPO. The main panel is a Mircom FA-1025T. The system does code 3, which does sound a little fast. I have gotten to silence and reset the system, after we had a kid accidently pull the alarm in the lobby.
Latly, my fire alarm collection so far. There is only a few stuff not pictured, which I had gotten after I took this pick. Those are 2 EST Genesis horn/strobes (red with FIRE on them), a red Edwards Adaptahorn, and a Simplex heat detector.
