The Pittsfield State Building Fire System Response is used for the planning and evacuation purposes. The evacuation response for this building is to evacuate ALL floors in the event of any alarm activation. Occupants of each affected floor should evacuate immediately when they get the alarm notification on their floor. Floors not affected by the alarm will not get the alarm notifications. The sequence of alarm activations and required occupant actions are noted in the table below.
The Pittsfield State Building fire detection and alarm systems are fully automatic, and when activated, a number of operations happen simultaneously:
The activation of the fire alarm system immediately notifies Building Security that an emergency situation exists, automatically summons the Pittsfield 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 Pittsfield Fire Department gives permission to do so.
