Building maintenance and emergency personnel will silence the alarm as soon as the emergency situation is under control. False fire alarms occur from time to time.

This determination is not made until the source of the alarm is investigated by a maintenance engineer. Assume that all unannounced alarms are true alarms and proceed with evacuating your staff and visitors.
