A fire alarm was pulled in a parkade at Royal Jubilee Hospital on Thursday afternoon triggering a code red. It was later determined to have been a false alarm.

Someone in the parking garage pulled the fire alarm by accident setting off the alarms, explained Island Health spokesperson Cheryl Bloxham.

The person was confused and ended up triggering the alarm, she noted. The code red was quickly called off.
