  • E-11, T-31, R-11 Responded to Mesa View for a water flow alarm. Arrived with no smoke or fire found.  Apparently fire alarm suppression system had been tested that day and a valve had been left partially open, allowing the air to escape from the system and fill the system with water, triggering the water flow alarm.  Maintenance drained the system of water and system was reset by staff without further incident.
