Quarterly Sprinkler Alarm Testing by Physical Plant

Week of December 18 - 21, 2017

The Physical Plant Life Safety Systems crew will be conducting Quarterly Sprinkler Alarm Testing in all buildings listed below.

Life Safety Systems staff & contractors 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.  In buildings where an audible announcement can be made over the fire alarm system, LSS staff will make that announcement advising of the test and no need to evacuate building.  Once the testing is complete they will make another announcement.  This audible announce is not available in every building so it is important to look at the printed notices on your building doors.

Below is the master schedule of testing. All affected buildings have been posted with notices.

Thank you for your cooperation as we ensure the safety of all students, faculty and staff in our campus community. For more informaion, contact LLS Supervisor, Chris Gebo
