- "Whoever pulled that fire alarm, YOU'RE GOING TO BURN IN HELL!"
- — Miss Danvers
Fire Alarms are a game mechanic in Bully.
Fire alarms are located throughout the buildings of Bullworth Academy. They are easily identifiable as small red boxes on the wall, sometimes near fire extinguishers. The box itself isn't the alarm, but rather a handle that, when pulled, rings the fire alarm bell. When the alarm goes off, everyone in the school will stop what they are doing and jog toward an exit. When the alarm has stopped, everyone will resume their business immediately. All students have unique dialogue in reaction to fire alarms.
When a student pulls the fire alarm Miss Danvers will usually complain about the prank over the intercom. It is also a violation of school rules and will show on the trouble meter as "Pulling Alarm". Prefects and other authority will try and bust students for this. The Bullies can sometimes be seen pulling the alarm.
Fire alarms cannot be found in the Library, Gym or Harrington House, or anywhere outside of the campus. Interestingly, if the player looks at a fire alarm through the scope on the Super Slingshot, the text "SIMPLEX" can be seen on the bottom. This is a possible reference to real-life security and communications company SimplexGrinnell, which manufactures fire alarms similar to the in-game model.
