Dover Buzz on Steroids! Wheelock Fire Alarms in Coronado Hall

I wasn’t forewarned of this, but my dorm had a fire drill. The residence halls at UNM are required to conduct fire drills once a semester, and they’re usually at the beginning of each semester. I was in my dorm room as soon as the alarms went off. The alarms are Wheelock EHS-DL1-WM horn/strobe combo alarms.

Note, only the first part of the video is inside.

This is my first fire alarm video in a month since I jammed with my Wheelock 7002T on my string bass.

Btw, the MTs in Coronado are obviously louder than my Wheelock 7002T-24, which is 87 dBs at 10 feet. My estimate is that the MTs are about the same loudness as the Gentex Commander 3 horn/strobe alarms.

    we haven’t had fires, but yeah, we’ve never had a drill (except freshman orientation last year). i swear it’s always because of steam from the showers, maybe the occasional popcorn or someone putting something in the microwave that’s not microwaveable.

    We didn’t need fire drills in my dorm last year, lol. We had REAL fires. One was caused by the elevator catching on fire and another because of a washing machine.
