Fire Alarm Testing: Aug 12 - 23, 2013

Mandated testing of the fire alarm systems will take place from August 12 to 23, 2013 in the following buildings:

  • 05 - WAL - Wallace Library
  • 06 - LBR - Liberal Arts Building
  • 7A - BOO - James E. Booth Hall
  • 7B - GAN - Frank E. Gannett Hall
  • 08 - GOS - Thomas Gosnell Hall
  • 09 - GLE - James E. Gleason Building
  • 25 - GWH - Grace Watson Dining Hall
  • 87 - USB – University Services Center

The exact time each building will be tested cannot be determined, except that it will be during normal working hours (8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.). Occupants of the areas may hear a brief audible alarm during the test, but there is no need to evacuate the buildings. However, if the alarm sounds for an extended period (approximately one (1) minute), evacuation is suggested for safety reasons.
