Pulling Fire Alarms

Fire alarm levers are in a lot of buildings are for emergencies only.  They are in a lot of government buildings, public buildings, apartment buildings, and schools, house of worship, restaurants, bars, lodges, and businesses.  Never pull them in fun as a joke or prank.  When you do pull a fire alarm as a joke, and the fire engine has to responds to the scene to shut it off.  This takes valuable time that could be spent on a real and legitimate emergency.

 

Pulling a fire alarm intentionally when there is no fire or odor of smoke or gas is illegal in many areas.  If you are caught doing it, you may face fines and/or jail time.  Penalties for violating such laws or ordinances vary from state to state or county to county.

 

Fire alarm levers should only be pulled in a real emergency.  Such emergencies include fire, odor or sight of smoke, or odor of gas.  Once a fire alarm is pulled get out of the building immediately and stay out until the fire department says it is okay to return.
