Berkeley Castle Management

I would like to commend all of you who promptly exited the building today when the fire alarm went off.

Fortunately, there was no fire.  We were quickly able to determine that one of our older model pull stations (the red boxes at every exit door) “faulted”.  As part of the annual maintenance (which was last week), we had determined that a certain number of pull station are to be upgraded.  Unfortunately, this one hadn’t been done yet.  They will be here today to replace it.  Please ignore the alarm bells if they go off again today.

We are a wee bit sorry that because this was unplanned, we were not able to offer everyone popsicles and ice cream as we have in the past when fire drills were planned in advance.
