The Norfolk Hills Trader Joe's was built in a historic, southern-style mansion. It now boasts an open floorplan to accommodate a large selection of groceries, though the store's architecture was designed to be as fitting as possible.

The Norfolk Hills Trader Joe's was built in 1990 in a historic, Southern-style mansion. It now boasts an open floorplan to accommodate a large selection of groceries, though the store's architecture was designed with the old layout in mind.

Control devices
  • The control panel is a Napco MFA-6000
  • There is a Napco RP6000 remote annunciator in the front entryway
Initiating devices
  • The pull stations are A*T 5050-001's
  • The smoke detectors are mostly Kidde 700-series. A few System Sensor i3 2W-B's have been spotted as well.
Notification devices
  • The signals are System Sensor MAEH horns on System Sensor RP241575ADA retrofit plates. Some of the horns seem a bit more faded than the plates, so my guess is that they were added later.
  • One of the horns is white and does 800 Hz. The MAEH can also do this tone but my bets are that it's a regular MA.
I know this because while I was in the dried fruit section trying to decide between bing cherries or prunes, the horns roared to life in electromechanical continuous. My phone battery died due to fiction, so I don't have any footage. When the FD finally let us back in, we found out an employee had left naan bread in the oven unattended at the free sample station. Needless to say, whoever it was is probably naan-employed now.

Jefferson Elementary School is a small 245,000 square foot neighborhood school, which doesn't even take up that much space. It has a separate building for the gymnasium. Built in 1963, the school has only gone with one system change, that year being 1987 due to a lightning power surge. Lets take a look at what's in store

PANEL: The "new" panel is a Simplex 4100, which replaced the original 4246. The gym building has no system.

INITIATORS: Every room in the school building (apart from the gym obviously), along with every 20-40 feet in the hallways/large rooms have Simplex 2098-9642s, which were installed with the newer system. A few classrooms and fire doors have conventional TrueAlarms. Every bathroom in the school has had their detector removed leaving either a hole in the ceiling (no drop ceilings), or covered with paint/circular backbox plate. Pull stations are under almost every alarm apart from the gym, being 2099-series break glass pulls, many of which are broken. The cafeteria has newer 2099-series pulls by the exit doors. The original system had no smokes, and pulls were coded Chevrons installed under each alarm.

ALARMS: Hallways have scarcely mounted Simplex 2903s with -9806 horns, mostly at 3-way hall points. 2904-9102 ceiling strobes are placed a couple feet away from EVERY smoke detector in the school, even in the bathrooms where they were removed. The cafeteria, art, and music rooms have Gentex SHG horn/strobes, with the lunchroom also having a 2903-9806. Original alarms consisted of 4040 horns- 3 in total- all in hallways. Two of these alarms are still in place but disconnected, and one was removed due to renovation.
