Fire Suppression System Testing in Isché Library, Fourth Floor

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.
