Fire alarm testing will be conducted throughout the dorms and Grace Watson Hall beginning the week following Commencement. FMS will be accompanying Simplex JCI through all rooms in the dorms and Grace Watson Hall in order to perform fire alarm systems testing. This testing will consist of entering and activating fire alarm sensors in all rooms and areas within the buildings being tested.
ALL ROOMS WITHIN THE BUILDINGS LISTED BELOW WILL BE ENTERED REGARDLESS OF OCCUPANCY.
After all sensors within the building / area have been tested HORN and STROBE activations will follow. Horn and strobe activations will consist of multiple soundings of the horn and visual devices repeatedly with horn activations not to exceed 120 seconds of continuous sounding without a short silent pause before re-sounding. In the event that horns and strobe remain active for a continuous extended period of time, please treat the event as an actual fire alarm and proceed accordingly.
The following buildings will be tested over the listed time frame:
Buildings 25, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 35, 37, 39, 41, 43, 47, 49, 50ABC.
Testing will begin in the building 43 quad and proceed from group to group as areas are completed.
