The following is a special fire alarm notice that was sent to all
residents in a condo building advising them of the appropriate way to react in
the future when fire alarms sound in the building. This particular notice was necessitated
because the local fire department had noticed that many people did not evacuate
the building during a recent fire alarm. In that particular case it was not a
false alarm and was an actual fire situation, thus causing the fire department
to be concerned since so few residents had evacuated the building as required.
