Oregon Hall Fire Alarm Testing 10/30 – 10/31

Tomorrow (Tuesday 10/30)  sometime between 12:00 pm and 5:00 pm the UO Fire Marshal’s Office needs to conduct a test of the fire alarm system in the Data Center at Oregon Hall.  The alarm will only go off inside the Data Center, but there is a chance that building occupants could hear it on floors above.  This is an emergency repair to the system, and Data Center staff is aware of the situation.

A follow-up fire alarm test throughout Oregon Hall will need to happen at 6:00 am on Wednesday 10/31.  All alarms will be silenced by 7:00 am.

Horns, Strobes, and Speakers on the fire alarm system will not sound after the scheduled time. Provisions have been taken to monitor the building fire systems during this time and alarms that occur after the scheduled time should be considered real events and occupants should evacuate as usual per the U of O Emergency Procedures.

If there are questions regarding emergency evacuation, please visit Emergency Management & Continuity, http://emc.uoregon.edu/node/50 and follow the UO Campus Emergency Procedures Manual.

For questions or concerns please contact SRS Zach Earl at 541-521-0351
