Destin Heights Apartments, built between 1984 and 1985, originally had an FCI FC-72 fire alarm system for each building. The main signals in the apartment buildings were Wheelock 34T-12 Horns. Pulls were FCI MS-2s. Smokes were mostly ESL brand. As for the clubhouse, they used Wheelock 7002T Horn/Strobes, with FCI MS-2s pulls and System Sensor 2400 smokes. Signal coding was continuous.

In 1993, a Wheelock 34T-12 died and was replaced with a System Sensor MAEH.

In 1999, an MS-2 in the clubhouse was found inoperative and was replaced with a FireLite BG-10.

In 2002, a 34T-12 broke during an inspection. It was replaced with a System Sensor SpectrAlert Horn.

In 2005, a fire broke out on the first floor of building 3, causing significant damage to the units. The whole system was replaced once that building was rebuilt. The new system is a FireLite MS-10UD. Signals are Wheelock AH Horns in the apartments, plus ASWP horn/strobes outside. Pull stations are FireLite BG-12s, and they put System Sensor i3 smokes throughout. Also a water sprinkler system was installed and a Wheelock MB10 was installed outside.

In 2009, the clubhouse upgraded their fire alarm system as a part of a major remodel. The new system is a FireLite MS-9600UDLS with a Wheelock SafePath voice evac panel. Signals are Wheelock E70 speaker/strobes, with Wheelock RSS Strobes in the bathrooms. They put E70WP speaker/strobes outside to serve the tiki bar. Pull stations are FireLite BG-12LXs and there are SD335A smokes scattered throughout. Signal coding is a code-3 tone with the standard male voice evacuation message.

In 2010, an ESL smoke detector was found inoperative and was replaced with a System Sensor i3 smoke with an internal sounder.

In 2011, a 34T-12 broke and was replaced with a System Sensor P2R Horn/strobe.

In 2016, an MS-2 died and was replaced with an EST 270-SPO.

A house with a unique 3.5 story design, built around 1975, originally just had old hardwired smoke alarms.

But in 2010, the new owners decided to put in a fire alarm system. The new system is a Mircom FX-2000 with a Sigcom DVS-50 serving the rec room, living room, dining room, and kitchen. Signals are Mircom FHS-340 Horn/Strobes in the hallway, basement, master bedroom, and office room. Each bedroom and bathroom got Mircom Mini horns. System Sensor SpectrAlert Advance Speaker/Strobes are installed in the rec room, kitchen, dining room, and living room. Outside and on the patio, they put System Sensor P2R Horn/Strobes. Pull stations are Mircom MS-700AP. Mircom MIX-2251AP smokes are installed throughout, but Beam200 Smokes are installed in the living room. System Sensor Duct Detectors are installed on the AHU and HVAC Duct in the Attic. Horn/strobes are set to code-3. Speaker/strobes play a whoop tone and a voice evacuation message. The detached garage gets a Silent Knight 5700 fire alarm system, with 2 System Sensor P2R Horn/Strobes, along with RSG T-bars and Edwards heat detectors.

In 2014, a Mircom Mini horn broke and was replaced with a Wheelock HW Horn.

In 2017, a Notifier BG-12 replaced a MS-700AP in the rec room.

Consolidated High School was founded in 1970. The original system was an Edwards Custom 6500 with 270-SPO's and newer 881D DC Adaptahorns and Edwards lights.

In 1973, a new building was added into the school, and there were Faraday 5640 horns behind Faraday light plates. Also, there are Faraday lights in the restrooms.

In 1989, an Adaptahorn was dead, so it was replaced with and Edwards 895B-001 horn/strobe.

In 1996, the system was replaced with a CP-35 System 3. Signals are U-HN-MCS and U-HN-S17S, and in the hallways, U-HN-MCS-C, or U-HN-S75S-C. In the largest classrooms, there are U-MMT-S30S-C's and in the cafeteria U-MMT-MCS's.

In 2003, they went with a renovation and added Wheelock MT-24MCW.
