Alarm Malfunction

The Express-Times has an article from the recent Council meeting on the miss-firing alert alarm that occurred on Labor Day morning (read it here).

While I’m the first to admit I wasn’t happy to be awakened early that morning, the more important aspects are to determine why the low voltage triggered the alarm, why the back-up power hadn’t been fully charged, and to review the notification process to ensure enough back-up is in place when individuals are away.

In the larger scope of things, it presented some flaws and serves as a good opportunity to improve our system, while at the same time it was a minor inconvenience to residents that morning.
