Facebook alarms

Dear Council members,
In recent weeks, Belle Haven has been frequently disturbed and sometimes for hours on end by extremely high-volume alarms at Facebook. While we all understand the need to have and responsibly test alarms, this is excessive.

The alarms are so loud they can be clearly heard indoors in the center of Belle Haven, many blocks away and are at hearing-damaging volume on campus and nearby. The alarms have been triggered/tested multiple times in recent weeks and are allowed to continue for long stretches of time.

Please remind Facebook of their responsibility to be a considerate neighbor and to not deafen their own employees. Please ask them to reduce the volume to a safer and more considerate level, try to limit testing/false alarms, and modify their testing/drill/false alarm procedure to limit the amount of time it is sounding.
