Packing up the fire protection systems on the island for the winter is tremendously time-consuming and you will want help, and even a truck, for some of it.

First Things FirstEdit

E-Light batteries are lead-acid batteries and should stored charged. So remove the batteries from all emergency lights from each building (especially the hotel) the moment they are cleared of occupancy. Every battery that gets discharged is another battery that will not survive the winter. Also make sure power isn't shut off to any E-Lights before you can get the batteries out of them. If it happens, those batteries will need to be charged before they're packed up in EMB.

This is the Deploy spreadsheet, but it should still be helpful for packing up:

Emergency Light Battery Packing Edit

Emergency Light Batteries should get done first. Lead-acid batteries deteriorate when they are discharged and they contain water so freezing temperatures can damage them as well. Work with the engineer to have the buildings shut down only after you've removed batteries from them.

How you get the batteries to EMB is up to you. For Close-Up 2011, I packed them in milk crates and put them on the road near where I took them down then had them all trucked to EMB.

For information on the E-Light units themselves, check Fire Protection Systems#Emergency Lighting Systems


This should tell you how many batteries to expect to find around the island.

Fire Extinguisher PackingEdit

The only tricky part about this is keeping track of all the deployed extinguishers as coverage is reduced.

  • Keep Close-Up extinguishers deployed at in-use Close-Up living spaces.
  • All other APW extinguishers taken to the Truck Trestle for packing.
  • All other ABCs and CO2s that are kept outside should be taken inside the nearest door and placed such that they will not be disturbed over the winter. All others can be left in place.
  • Gathered APWs should all be discharged and emptied before being stored in OBR.
  • Any APWs that still contain water will freeze and rupture over the winter.


Battery Smoke Detector InstallationEdit

9V Batteries should be kept in EMB over the winter. The detectors themselves can remain in the rooms.

Be very careful storing and transporting 9V batteries as they are extremely easy to short by accident. This is very very bad!

HosesEdit

All hoses should be taken off the stations, rolled up, and returned to the Fire Shed. When rolling hoses, start with the male end and roll the hose tightly around it. This will both protect the threads on that end and it will be easier and faster to unroll without kinks.

Here's a table for where all the hoses are:
