Quarterly Sprinkler Testing - SPRING BREAK

The Physical Plant Life Safety Systems crew will be conducting Quarterly Sprinkler Alarm Testing in all buildings during Spring Break week.

Life Safety Staff & Contractor will be testing the sprinkler systems that we have in various buildings on our campus.  This test consists of flowing water through the sprinkler pipe that will cause the fire alarm to activate.  Where an announcement can be made over the fire alarm system, LSS staff will make that announcement advising of the test and no need to evacuate.  Once the testing is complete they will make that announcement.  Again this cannot be done in every building so it is important to look at the postings.

Below is the master schedule of testing. All affected buildings have also been posted with notices. Thank you for your cooperation as we ensure the safety of all students, faculty and staff in our campus community.
