Had a similar thing happen at the Tandy Center in Fort Worth not long after we moved into our new R&D building. The security guards set off the smoke detector in the printer room when they reported all secure. THAT got everyone's attention.

A different "RFI" problem there was cured by getting software engineers to walk around with their bottoms wet (really!) but that's another story.
