Smoke detectors with audible alarms can be found in each bedroom and other smoke and heat detectors can be found at strategic positions around The Hive at 52. In the event of any one detector being activated, the alarm will sound throughout the building and the entire building will be evacuated.

Our fire alarm system has an audible alarm only and does not have any facility to alert those unable to hear the alarm in the event of an activation.
