You are in a hotel room at 5:30 in the morning. (Get your mind out of the gutter--I am speaking at a conference.) The hotel's fire alarm sounds. If you ever wondered what that strobe light and speaker did...WOW...loud and bright.
Do you get up, get dressed and exit the building according to the evacuation map on the door...or do you stay in bed and wait it out? Probably a false alarm. Don't smell smoke.
