Today the fire department showed up two times, about and hour and a half apart. Unbenounced to anyone in the building the fire/security panel apparently freaked out and silently dialed 911 (twice). No alarms and strobes, and no reported errors on the panels.
Things happen, but this has happened twice since this summer when the had ESG (who got canned and replaced by Martin/Connecting Point) do the security panel upgrade.
You'd think "they" would have had someone look at it since that time. Speaking of "they," it is just the most impressive thing in the world when you have something like this happen and you'd like to get a hold of someone. Even more-so awesome, when the Fire Chief leaves a message trying to raise the dead, and no response from either the Director of Building and Grounds or the Assistant.
Thank goodness the building principal was eventual reachable and came in. At least someone has a sense of responsibility.
The system was taken off line till a service technician could come in that night to trouble shoot it. As there was a good chance if it could not be remedied before school next morning that they would have to cancel/delay school as you really can't go a whole day with the fire system/monitoring disabled when you have full occupancy.
