State Fire Marshal inspects St. Helena Central High fire alarms

4 years ago October 29, 2010 Oct 29, 2010 Friday, October 29 2010 Friday, October 29, 2010 10:57:06 AM EDT in News

ST. HELENA PARISH - Inspectors from the State Fire Marshal's Office are back at St. Helena Central High School, this time checking a new fire alarm system.

Inspectors expected a fully installed system, but found that electricians are only partially finished with the work.

After the a full install, each room will have pull stations and strobe lights, in accordance with the 1999 code. Inspectors estimate the school could have the system installed within two to three weeks.

The school has been using a "fire watch" system the past several years where teachers walk the school checking for fires every half hour.

Inspectors also found something that aggravates them-- the school still has not complied with some requirements from an inspection in the summer.

Mattresses are still stored under bleachers, causing a fire hazard. Students were not supposed to be on those bleachers, but as soon as inspectors left the room, News 2 found kids on the bleachers again.

We'll have more tonight on News 2 at 5 and 6.
