A recent memo on fire safety, distributed to our entire district, stated among other things that we are not allowed to have any electrical cords, multi-plug adapters, or halogen lamps on campus. I laughed, figured it was common sense that the rules did not apply to theater, and threw out the memo...until I was hauled into a very serious meeting today to inform me that there were multiple citations against my space for several lights (the name of which, oddly, wasn't familiar, and I have no idea which fixtures they meant) that must be removed immediately because they use halogen lamps. At some point someone is going to notice the rest of my inventory - cables and two-fers included. The box of halogen lamps by my office door should make for an interesting conversation. It couldn't have been much of an inspection, since they missed the other safety violations in the area, oddly enough. Are there any codes or standards I can show to the AHJ/Fire Martial to demonstrate that this is safe, standard, and somewhat necessary for what we do? I hate to sound lazy, but if I don't demonstrate this soon I'm worried that this will snowball among those who are in charge, but don't know better.
