Learn about fire and alarm systems in the State Exposition Building.

About the fire system

The Massachusetts State Exposition Building Fire System Response is used for the planning and evacuation purposes. The evacuation response is a general evacuation for the entire building in the event of any alarm activation. Occupants should evacuate outside of the building.

About the alarm system

The Massachusetts State Exposition Building fire detection and alarm systems are fully automatic, and when activated, a number of things happen simultaneously:

  • Springfield Fire Department is notified immediately
  • The Command Center is notified and trained employees are dispatched to the location.

The activation of the fire alarm system, sprinkler head, smoke detector, or pull station immediately notifies Building Security that an emergency situation exists, automatically summons the Springfield Fire Department, and signals the occupants in the building to evacuate.  Most fire alarm activations will call for evacuation. It is critical that all personnel exit the building immediately.  Do not re-enter the building until the Springfield Fire Department gives permission to do so.
