Town Hall fire alarm ignored

Shortly before 3:30 this afternoon the fire alarm in Lewes Town Hall went off, and the users evacuated the build as they should. The alarm is supposedly connected directly to the Fire Station (3 minutes drive away), and probably to an alarm company also. By twenty minutes later there had been no response from East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service, although I gather the town hall staff had even tried a 999 call. Fortunately it seems to have been a false alarm, but if there had been a real fire a major public listed building and probably other buildings in that block would have been lost.
What do the ESFRS think they are playing at?

Could it have been a fire evacuation? Most commercial buildings will be required to have evacuation drills every 12 months so maybe the fire brigade was warned of it? Unless you are conducting the drill you wouldn’t be warned of it happening

Why not ask them about the facts, MG, instead of scaremongering with your mock outrage on here?

@just me - the town council staff were just as surprised and annoyed as the users, as it fell to them to ascertain whether there really was a fire where their console said it was.
@Local - The facts are as I stated. The cause is as yet unknown. it's for the Town Council to pursue, not the users. But if they'd got no response to a 999, what chance do you you think a third party would have of a sensible response?
On 14 Sep 2018 at 12:54pm About as much chance as wrote:
a sensible response on here . LOL

They were probably too busy playing badminton down the fire station, their quite partial to a knock up.
