False Alarm

This has been a strange week for being in the vicinity of fire alarms going off. I think Sam and I have seen three in the last three days.

This was the first one when we were at Photo Warehouse getting more film. Since it is at the bottom of an apartment block something like five fire engines turned up and there were quite a few people who looked like they had been woken up by the alarm and weren’t too happy that it was a false alarm (I am not too sure they would have been happier if it was a real fire).

  1. love the look the film gives the pictures! I have a question in the US when a fire alarm goes of do you automatically get alerted or does someone phone it in? don’t know why but I have always wondered..

    • Here in New Zealand if it is a commercial building or apartment building then it goes straight to the fire department and if it is a house then you have to call it in… But its probably different in the USA…
