POSSIBLE Fire Safety Testing (Smoke Detectors and Extinguishers)
January 15, 2020
This was scheduled for the prior week; however, this date is being held in case inspections we not able to have been completed.
Our fire safety vendors are scheduled to perform smoke detector and fire extinguisher inspections; and these must be completed in January.
During the entire day on Wednesday, January 15, our Facilities staff will escort RB Allen and KONE (two of our fire safety compliance providers) around campus so that they may test all of our smoke detectors and fire extinguishers. They will begin at 8am in non-dormitory buildings, and then they will start in the dorms after 10am. STUDENTS: SMOKE DETECTORS IN DORM ROOMS WILL ALSO NEED TO BE INSPECTED, SO INSPECTORS WILL BE GRANTED ACCESS TO YOUR ROOMS.
Short alarms may be heard now and then during the day. FYI, classrooms likely will not need to be entered, as smoke detectors are hung in the hallways outside the classrooms.
Thank you so much for your cooperation and collaboration!
