Excuse me, this is a high school you're talking about??
Yep. I’m not going to reveal the school name due to privacy’s sake but its up there with the highest ranked schools in the US.
Anyways to update, the old Simplex alarm removal process has been going very smooth. There are no more Simplex horn/strobes, pull stations, smoke detectors, etc in the hallways, It’s all Siemens now. They had just finished up with the 8000s [third floor]. The first strobes in some classrooms and bathrooms are finally being removed and covered after a semester and a half. It looks weird to see my 8th period math class have nothing on the wall lol.
That's cool, it just amazes me how the U.S. high schools are so massive and have everything in them. Here in Canada, I'm shocked if a highschool has an auditorium or even a pool. I think there is only one high school in my entire city with a pool.
Damn, that sucks. You should've checked the nearby dumpster, I'm pretty sure that's where the techs ended up throwing the devices into. It reminds me of a job I'm doing right now. We're replacing an Edwards 2280 system (original) in a 2 story family shelter with an Addressable Kidde VS4 system. Every device is getting replaced besides the 6" Bells. Which I gotta say, I appreciate it more as a tech than seeing an old system get taken out as a collector
There's just something about looking down the halls and rooms and seeing the shiny new heats/smokes, and the bright red pull stations, replacing the yellowed out, faded and older devices.
