    Depends what is burning. Some things stink to heaven others will smolder giving off toxic fume with no smell and no smoke. Thankfully smoke detectors pick up the later.

    A fire alarm means get out of the building quick. Fire alarms are to practice getting out in the quickest safest manner. No time to pick up brollies or bits of paper.

    I think it is extremely dangerous to suggest that anything other than evacuating the building should be practiced.

    Have you ever seen those lights that come on when the mains power is lost? I don't think they do a printer that does that when a fire has fried the main curcuit board.

    Admin do ours - high speed LJ4250, and 1 door away from the big double-exit doors. 1 button in the MIS fires the report off.

    Staff clear each room and should lock behind them, cleaners (all day long here) check the loos etc, and we in IT Services check the place on the way out to be double sure and shout at any kids we find lurking.

    We do tend to flick the office plasma over to the CCTV to view the recorders and search the fire out straight off. We can have 30 or so cameras on the screen at once and the controller on our desk.

    Lock doors? The fire brigade would love you.

    I think most suggestiond are great if the fire starts in a convienient place, they usually don't. What if it starts in that office with the fancy printer or the CCTV screens?
