You all know my story, I'm a service manager (maintenance man) for an apartment complex. Well, there's 19 buildings here all protected by fire alarm systems. Any way we are having a pretty good lightning storm here tonight. About and hour and a half ago I get a call from the alarm company for a fire in a building, I go there and the fire dept just showed up and of course no fire, just a lightning strike. We set it to fire watch and they leave. Five minutes later they are coming back, 2 more buildings are going off. Same thing in these two. Ok they leave and I assume they get back to the station, I get back home and low and behold I get another call from the alarm company. I have another building going off, I get out there and here comes the fire dept. This time only one guy gets out of the truck and checks it out. So now I have 4 buildings struck by lightning with alarm panels fried. Boy are the bosses going to be pissed off tomorrow.
