Study Notes and Theory cannot afford to rent space at a newly built state-of-the-art offsite data center. They are hoping you can help them build a solid data center right in their own corporate office building in Hawaii.
Management has allocated a room on the ground floor with enough plenum space to take care of the excess wires that will be required for the servers, firewalls, routers, and switches. A fire extinguisher resides 50 feet away, and the room itself has surge protectors, a photo-electric smoke detector, and a dry-pipe fire control water dispersing mechanism. The entrance to the room is controlled by a cipher lock.
Which of the following concerns should be addressed FIRST?
A. Change the dry-pipe system to a pre-action fire control system
B. Move the fire extinguisher 25 feet closer to the cipher lock
C. Inquire the last time the fire department tested the smoke detector
D. Ask to change the location of the room completely
