Horowhenua College released a statement apologising after reports of loud alarm sound occurred awaking the surrounding neighbourhood shortly before midnight on Wednesday.

It was found that the fire alarm went off at the College due to a fault in their sprinkler system.

Identifying the fault took some time to find and turn off, according to a Facebook statement.

“The alarm was not due to a fire sensor being triggered but instead to a fault in the sprinkler system. This fault took much longer than usual to identify and shut off.”

Appreciation was given to the volunteer fire and emergency members who attended the scene.

“A big thank you also to our volunteer firefighters who attended this event last night. Your service to our community is greatly appreciated.”
