And it goes from an Edwards to a Fire-Lite…

And there you have it.  I figured that, when Herb, three firefighters, and I had trouble resetting the pull station during that accidental fire alarm at the pool last Thursday, the Edwards 270A-SPO that had recently been installed at the pool and was the center of the action in this alarm would not be long for this world.  And I was right.  This is what greeted me when I arrived for today’s workout:

Fire-Lite BG-12

And apparently it’s at the end of a line, because it had this written on the top of it:

Fire-Lite BG-12 with markings indicating end of line

This seemed to be the more logical choice in pull stations for this facility.  The system is Notifier, and Fire-Lite and Notifier are both in the Honeywell family of companies.  That Edwards station, while fully compatible with the system (as was clearly demonstrated), just didn’t feel right in a building that otherwise used Notifier pull stations.  As there are three other BG-12 stations in the building already, it’s not an outlier by any means.

But there you go.  Three different pull stations in one spot over the course of about a month or two.  Now let’s just hope that little children keep their grubby little mitts off the pull stations while I’m trying to swim…
