Physical Plant Department

Annual Fire Alarm Testing Begins Monday, May 22

The Physical Plant Life Safety Systems crew will be conducting Annual Sprinkler Alarm Testing in all campus buildings starting Monday May 22nd.

Life Safety Staff and contractors will be testing the sprinkler systems in many buildings.  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 audible fire alarm system, LSS staff will make that announcement advising of the test and that there is no need to evacuate. Once the testing is complete, they will make a second announcement. 

Not all university buildings have an audible announcement system, thus it is important to look at the written postings and specific dates and times below to see when your building is being tested.

Below is the master schedule of testing. Written notices will be posted on doors of all affected buildings.  Thank you for your cooperation as we ensure the safety of all students, faculty and staff in our campus community.
