A fire alarm box, fire alarm call box, or fire alarm pull box is a device used for notifying a fire department of a fire. Typically installed on street corners or in buildings.
Cities like San Francisco rely on this type of boxes for emergencies because they offer redundancy over other communication systems, like cell phones.
