ROOF RESCUE TRAINING 7/18 – 7/19 & 8/10

REMINDER & UPDATE

ROOF RESCUE TRAINING
AUGUST 10

Still No Cause for Alarm

Campus Community,

Occupants, visitors or passersby at PLC and McKenzie Hall will see unusual activity on August 10: a big fire truck with an extended ladder, and emergency workers ascending to the roofs.

It’s no cause for alarm. It’s all a preparedness training arranged by University of Oregon Safety and Risk Services, to allow Eugene and Springfield Fire Department crews to practice for roof rescue on campus. The training is scheduled for 9:00 a.m.- noon, and will include a ladder truck, one or two other fire engines, and one or two other support vehicles. As many as 15 fire department personnel and more UO staff could be on hand, and crews might use a portable ladder along with the ladder truck at McKenzie Hall. Some of the team may enter the buildings and climb to the roofs with UO staff help.

The same drills ran successfully on July 18 and 19; August 10 is the third and final session this summer. These drills are the first with the ESFD team. More could follow in the future for other rooftop rescues, or confined space and tunnel rescue training.

[BEAN HALL EAST & WEST] Electrical Shutdown 7/9 – 7/24

As part of renovations, contractors are shutting down electrical power to Bean Hall East and West July 9 – 24, 2018 to allow for replacement of transformers, and cut-over to new switch-gear. The impact will be minimal since Bean Hall East and West is vacant and currently under construction.

Cascade Hall Custodial Services Update

CPFM Custodial Services is piloting a daytime custodial program in Cascade Hall that started today June 28, 2018.  The custodian hours are Monday – Friday 6:00 AM – 2:30 PM  This is a program that has been successful in other buildings across campus.

We have seen that many around campus value getting to know the custodial staff members assigned to their buildings, and that building occupants appreciate getting to know those who work in the buildings we care for. This new approach will give many occupants the opportunity to know the custodian assigned to Cascade Hall. During the summer occupants will see several new faces, as we are cross-training the staff allowing us to provide the best coverage as absences occur.  Our goal is to make sure we do the best possible job of keeping the University buildings clean and safe.

We have recently worked with Sandy Thoms regarding this transition but, recognize that each space may have unique issues and concerns.  As with any initiative, we will learn and adapt as we implement this program.  We welcome comments and feedback so that we can make adjustments that meet needs and contribute to a successful transition.

For questions or concerns please contact CPFM Facilities Services Custodial Manager Tim Winder at 541-346-5771.

Thank You,

Tim Winder
Interim Custodial Services Manager
