What’s the deal with single family homes that have these fire alarm bells? Are they connected to a smoke detector? How do they differ from the straight up smoke detectors that screetch all on their own?

  • is that the renovation on u street/florida ave near 18th street? Cause i think it used to be a school- maybe the reason for the bell.
