  • Annual Fire Alarm Testing

    Dear Colleague,

    Safety & Security and Johnson Controls will be conducting a mandated annual fire alarm testing on Thursday, September 19th, 2019.

    On Thursday, September 19th starting at 8 a.m., the fire alarm inspection team will be going building to building (Building 700, 1600, and 9000) to activate each individual fire alarm to inspect the horn signals and strobes. The alarm sound activation will only last a short few seconds and, once the technician is able to inspect the entire building, they will then shut off the alarm and return the system back to normal mode.

    If you have any questions about the fire alarm testing, please contact Safety & Security at X4633. Thank you!

    Sincerely,
    Edwin Lucero
    Director, Safety & Security & Emergency Management
