I noticed that portable

I noticed that portable toilets are fine for schools, but I didn't see where they would be provided to the main office. The real question is why isn't the school closed for safety reasons? I say that because the school by Federal and State and local laws is required to have a sprinkler system in the event of fire, Well if the water is off then what about the sprinkler?

Since all the schools in CC have electronics in the classrooms and common areas, have you considered the possibility of a Halon system?

There is a replacement for

There is a replacement for Halon. Unfortunately, it is more expensive, but isn't that the way it always is ?? And the sprinkler system, if it exists, is only in the main building. What about the portables ??

It just seems to me, JerryAtrick, that the county's rate of growth has outpaced it's ability to upkeep it's infrastructure
