The Physical Plant Life Safety Systems (LSS) crew conducts annual testing of the Sprinkler Alarm systems in all campus buildings each Spring after Commencement. 

Here's what to Expect During Sprinkler Testing

Life Safety personnel & contractor will be testing the sprinkler systems 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 audible announcement can be made over the 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 another announcement. This audible announcement cannot be done in every building so it is important for building occupants to make note of the postings on their buildings' entrance doors. 

 2019 Master Schedule

Below is the master schedule of testing. All affected buildings have also been posted with notices.   Due to Commencement activities in certain areas some buildings will not be posted until May 20th
