Hi Guys,

Soon I will be the LD for the main stage of a convention. We are aiming for intense concert style lighting, and I want to have a few moving heads or scanners, with some fog so the beams are visible.

However, I am very worried about setting off the fire alarm in the facility.

This is the first time I have incorporated fog or haze into a show, so any tips and tricks would be appreciated.

Call the Fire Dept and let them know what your doing before hand, even with the venues blessing there's always that chance that they go off. The last thing you want to do is have the fire dept knocking down your doors, plus the fine and dagger eyes form the firefighters.
