The tenants in this beautiful office building can rest "safe & secure", knowing that they've got a State of the Art fire alarm system. Little do they know that the true "art" lies in the equipment rooms. (All said very sarcastically, of course. If the tenants knew what was in their building, they'd run for their lives)

The only "single action" things I know much about were originally patented by Samuel Colt, and I love them all.
This building has beautiful lobbies with keypads in each (usually reading an error code).
This is the same building that has the 225 amp fuses in the 200 amp disconnects.
I absolutely hate when I'm sent here. I wish that I could just fix it...but it's not my building
