NOTICE: A building-wide power outage at the Lions/LSU Clinics Building has been scheduled for Sunday, December 7th, 2008 from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. During this outage there will only be emergency power to maintain emergency lights and service to some specific equipment in the building – these items are plugged into the red receptacles.  The regular receptacles, elevators, lights, air conditioning and heating, exhaust, and all pumps will be off in all sections of the building as the electrical power from Entergy is shut down to allow installation of power for the new equipment in the building. 


We highly recommend that no one stay in the building during the outage due to the lack of utilities and elevators.  However, should there be a need to be in the building, please do not attempt to use any water (hot or cold) at any faucet, toilet or urinal during this outage.  Also, to avoid problems upon the return of power, please do not open any medical air or vacuum valves during this outage.


Please note that only the equipment already plugged into the red receptacles should remain plugged into them.  Please do not plug additional equipment into the red receptacles as this will cause circuit overload and total equipment failure. 


NOTICE: Due to the on-going projects on the 4th, 5th and 8th floors of the Dental School Clinic Building, there will be a utility outage that will affect the domestic hot water, domestic cold water, de-ionized water, laboratory air and laboratory vacuum systems in the Clinic Building.  The outage will start at 5:00 PM on Friday, December 5th and services will be restored by midnight.  During the outage, there will be no water at any faucet, toilet or urinal and no de-ionized water, laboratory air, laboratory vacuum at any valve.  We ask that no one attempt to use any of these services during the outage as this can cause problems when the services are restored.  The Administration Building will not be affected by this outage.
