I am the safety coordinator in a food manufacturing plant. I have seen language in the safety manual that the previous safety coordinator put together that directs the plant manager shut down the equipment in our plant in the event of a fire. Is that a requirement, suggestion or not suggested to attempt when a fire is burning?

The fire alarm at my warehouse has issues and occasionally goes off where we can't get it to stop until the company comes out to fix it. Are we allowed to turn off the horns and conduct a fire watch during this time?
