Fire systems testing scheduled this week in campus buildings

The campus fire sprinkler system will be tested today (Tuesday) through Friday, May 29. Buildings affected are EHS, Stevens, Hadlock, Hoover, the Roberts Center, and the Wheeler Sports Center.

Every sprinkler head in the building will be inspected, and a flow test will occur. When the flow test runs, the fire alarm will sound. The alarm may sound several times during the day, but will not alert the fire department.

The testing is scheduled over the entire week, but the time will be divided among the buildings listed (so it won’t take the entire week to test one building). The final schedule is determined by the inspector and has not been released to the university. Some buildings may take longer to inspect than others, so we thank you in advance for your patience.
