Fire Alarm Paging System

A 'CODE RED' announced over the paging system means 'Fire or Fire Drill.'  The telephone operator will repeat this three (3) times, followed each time by the location of the alarm. 

For example, if there is a fire on the seventh floor Thompson, it will be announced:

“CODE RED, 7th floor, Thompson.
 CODE RED, 7th floor, Thompson.
 CODE RED, 7th floor, Thompson.”

When the alarm is over, the telephone operator will announce an 'ALL CLEAR' three (3) times:

“CODE RED, 7th floor, Thompson, All Clear.
 CODE RED, 7th floor, Thompson, All Clear.
 CODE RED, 7th floor, Thompson, All Clear.”
