Fire alarm system at work goes off with the code: CITY/DACT

Customer Question

Fire alarm system at work goes off with the code: CITY/DACT TROUBLE. I have downloaded the manual for the system, " Simplex Fire Alarm Control 4004. It states that a DACT trouble output will cause the systems alarm to go off and must be reset to cut it off. What is CITY/DACT TROUBLE. Is this something that needs to be fixed pronto? What exactly is it that triggers the alarm, is it something we should keep an eye on? I just don't have any knowledge to fire alarm systems and any answers would be helpful. I work at a 24 hour facility who helps people in recovery with their children and I just want to take an extra step to ensure that our clients are kept safe. Thank you in advance.
