Wondering if we can get a consensus on this.
10.30am Monday here
Haven't had it yet, so I can only assume they're broken.
Lasts ages and is absolutely ear-piercing.
Always forget, always shit myself.
I can think of at least two.
Probably means it's on my days off. Used to be Wednesday at 11 am at my old place, which was also my day off. Never heard it.
more like 6 motnhly
We're talking the weekly sounding of fire alarms
Fucking right pain in the arse. Very loud and shrill, almost disorientatingly so. One loud blast for a couple of seconds, then another. IT FUCKING WORKS. I am sure they are more likely to wear it out through overuse than it failing somehow.
Doesn't bother me as I don't saunter into the office until at least 9:30am
A chap comes around once a month to check if the smoke detectors are working but I've only heard the fire alarm twice in the six months I've been here.
I never hear it so it could be a lie.
Safety first and all that.
Preceded 5 minutes earlier by a bomb alert alarm
Thursday 11am, thanks for asking.
THE FIRE ALARM WILL NOW BE TESTED
***insanely loud noise for at least 10 seconds too long***
THE FIRE ALARM TEST HAS NOW BEEN COMPLETED
IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS HEARING THE FIRE ALARM PLEASE CALL 5999
