Nurse Call Station Room Indicator/Corridor Light (Lamp)

Nurse Call Station Room Indicator/Corridor Light (Lamp)

My apartment complex is under renovation and I found this in a container of stuff to be tossed out.
This fixture assembly is apparently made by a company in Tecumseh, MI by the name of S.H Couch CO. The UL tag on the plate (which is surprisingly still clean and readable as these were stationed outdoors) says
"Listed 969R
Nurse Call Equipment
Corridor Light
S.H Couch CO
Tecumseh, MI"

More information on the outdoor part and a mini background of the system this once belonged to

There are 186 apartments with a "Pull for help" system and there is no common corridor or common area just a door leading directly to the outside world. These were mounted above the door so when the alarm was tripped it lit up indicating what apartment signaled for the bell and rotating light (think 1960's police car) to go off. That system is ineffective in today's world as it relied on another person to actually call for help or to see if the tenant was OK or if it was a false alarm.

I believe they are installing a smart system that relays the alarm signals to the main building that has attendants there 24/7/365 and their job would be to see why the alarm was triggered and call for help if needed

What a find

Yes it is
I would not be surprised if this is the original lamp from 1984 (the same year I was born). I would also assume they were not used much as they are only on when the alarm is active. I am also surprised it still works being thrown into a box with a bunch of heavy items (this was the only good thing in the box) and this being near the bottom of the box.

Unfortunately I can't see the filament and I don't want to destroy the color filter when I already know the lamp works
