Centralized Telemetry Monitoring and Alarm Noise

    ​We recently opened our centralized Telemetry monitoring room and are interested in learning how other sites manage the alarm noise in the room. Does your tele team  turn off the audible alarms? Do they wear headsets for their monitors their assigned? Are the audible alarms turned on, but very low?
    thank you in advance,
    Julie
