Hope there's an answer for this.

Our Halon fire extinquisher from the computer room went to be recharged and 
never came 
back.  I talked to maintenence yesterday and they say halon is now illegal and 
the 
extinquisher could not be recharged.  They brought us up a CO2 one for now.  I 
also was 
told the old overhead sprinkler that I thought was disconnected was not.

I feel there must be some replacment for halon.  What should we be using now 
halon is not 
available?  I am having horrors of a small fire in the computer room and the 
AS400 being 
turned into a piece of junk from CO2 or water just as surely as if it was 
burned up.  What 
type of extinquisher should we be using?  I don't trust our maintenence 
department to come 
up with the correct answer.

This also made me think of disaster recovery (I know, I should have been 
thinking of it 
before).  Do any of you have contracts with a company that will provide an 
alternate site 
if a disaster happens to your AS400.  Or will bring one to your site?  What 
companies can I 
check into?

Thanks for any information you can give me.
