Remote Station and Protected Premises Fire Alarm Systems

It is said that any system is only as good as the last time it was tested.  Assume that a fire alarm system with voice capability is installed in a large grocery distribution center.  The place is a million square feet, and there are 3,000 people picking orders, filling pallets and driving fork trucks to load any of the trailers backed into the 100 loading dock doors.  All of these employees can't go on break and eat lunch at the same time, so they are broken into lettered groups - A, B, C, etc.

The fire alarm speakers may have cost a few more bucks to put in than the horn strobes may have, but the traffic manager uses the speaker system to call out the beginning and ends of breaks, lunches, and any other announcements required for the employees.  Some people would shudder with fear that the fire alarm system is going to wear out, but what better test is there than using the voice system every hour or so.

As long as the AHJ accepts it, and the system is installed properly, it may well be the most dependable voice system in the state.
