THE MOORE-WILSON SIGNALING REPORT
---------------------------------

Question #1225
--------------
Is there a code which states that strobes are non-silenceable and go
off only on reset?

Answer
------
While this practice is often followed, and might be even be required
by local requirements, it is not a requirement of NFPA 72 and its
implementation is problematic. Fire fighters sometimes argue that
silencing the audible notification appliances and leaving the strobes
activated allows them to investigate an alarm without impeding their
radio communications. However, this sends a mixed signal to the
building occupants who might be tempted to reenter the building when
the audible notification appliance stops. It also might suggest that
hearing impaired individuals should respond differently to an alarm
than those who are not impaired and, more significantly, a blind
person could reasonably assume that the alarm condition was resolved,
while in fact it was still under investigation.
