Re: Safe for personnel?

When I worked in a facility that had a gas discharge fire system (FM200 from memory) we were told to get out of the room ASAP when the alarm went off as being in there when the discharge went off would likely blow out your ear drums and possible cause other problems also. Even people near the room weren't safe as for some reason they put windows in one of the exterior walls to a corridor so they could show off the contents of the DC. The glass wouldn't survive the discharge
