Alarm System Sounds
The Glen Ellyn East Campus has a complete alarm system to notify building occupants
of a Fire Alarm or a severe weather Take Shelter Alarm. These two different components
of the system have distinctively different alarm tones and a different prerecorded
message. The following is a sample sound clip of each of the two alarms. Each type
of alarm will continue to replay the tones and message until the alarm sound is either
silenced or reset by officials.
Sample FIRE ALARM sound clip (click to activate sound)
Sample TAKE SHELTER sound clip (click to activate sound)
These two sound clips are provided for staff and students to play and to be able to
understand the difference between the two alarm sounds. The system also has an emergency
PA system that will be used if necessary to give building occupants special instructions.
Each of the Glen Ellyn East Campus buildings could have a fire alarm activated while other buildings do not have to evacuate. The circumstances of the alarm incident will dictate which building or buildings need to evacuate during an emergency.
