(Dec 12/16) fire alarm:
today at 1:09 - 31 rings, then a screech, 6 rings, 4 more screeches, 11 rings
no message (and it is now 1:19)
This is a hospital. Are there no audiologists on staff? Is there no concern about damage to
hearing from high decibels? from prolonged and repeated noise? Why 31 rings? Why do 10 not
suffice? Why the screeches?
And - how about a location ???
Thank you for sharing your concern. We are not sure why today's fire alarm do not follow proper protocol (including the regular announcement about location). I have sent a note to hospital security to obtain more information.
