In this new weekly offering, FacilityBlog will feature one question posted by a facility management professional to TFM‘s Tricks of the Trade Columnist Jim Elledge. While a link to Elledge’s response will be included, the goal of this exercise is to initiate even more discussion and encourage additional feedback within the facility management community. Q. Can you explain why, when a fire alarm goes off in a high-rise building, that the floor with the trouble is the only one (along with those above and below) with an activated alarm?
