On Wednesday October 19th & Thursday October 20th, from 8 AM to 4 PM, routine testing of the waterless fire suppression system will be taking place in the library rare books room, on the 4th floor of the Resource Center Building.
Announcements will be made throughout testing to let building occupants know that these systems are being tested and that evacuation will not be necessary.
Testing will involve periodically activating fire alarm strobe lights and audible alarms (speakers and horns) on the floors being tested. When all testing has concluded, an announcement will be made so that all occupants will know that the testing is complete.
Thank you for your patience.
In case you missed the email from J. Pegues, Vice Chancellor for Administration:
The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival will be held at the New Orleans Fairgrounds this weekend (24 – 26 April) and next week (30 April – 03 May). Dean Henry Gremillion, DDS, has kindly extended an invitation to LSU Health New Orleans faculty, staff, and students to park at the Dental School, space permitting, with their LSUHSC IDs and parking gate cards. University Police will accommodate entering and exiting through the Tensas Street Gate (the back walk-thru gate) on the above-referenced dates until 7:30 P.M. each day. After 7:30 P.M., entering and exiting at the Tensas Street Gate will be via swiping your LSUHSC ID. Access will also be available through the Florida Avenue drive-in. All LSUHSC rules and regulations remain in effect regarding proper use and care of our campus properties and facilities. Please see Chief William Joseph for any other questions.
While not projected to hit New Orleans at this time, the potential of a storm in the Gulf is a good time to remind everyone to register for LSUHSC’s Emergency Alert System. Once your cell phone number is registered, you will receive alert notifications related to dangerous or threatening situations or conditions in facilities owned by LSUHSC-NO on the downtown and Dental School academic campuses.
In plain language: you will know in advance if you have to go to school when a storm threatens.
The text message system is easy to use. Run through a program called E2Campus, all you have to do is log in with your LSUHSC Network ID and enter your phone number and service provider. You’ll quickly receive a ‘verification code’ via text, which confirms your number in the text alert system. Then you are set for the next emergency.
