OK, so, DHS will have to 'try harder.' As for Highland-Park, what's the story over there; and the same goes for New Trier? My, how the once mighty have fallen. Go Big Red!

another scenario. water pipe to sprinkler system breaks (happened at my job when it was 4F outside)Read More and fire alarm always goes off. students faculty and staff required by law to evacuate due to fire alarm being activated. this is very possible in cold temperatures to have the water pipes break
