Fire Pump Testing: CLSL-A -- MON, JULY 23

TO ALL IN CLSL-A:

The SCS Facilities & Safety team received word there will be fire pump testing done at CLSL-A on Monday, July 23.  You shouldn’t notice any impact since the alarms will not need to be activated.  Further information of the testing is below:

Testing of the fire pump in your building has been scheduled.  The fire pump testing will not require the building fire alarm system to be activated and therefore we do not anticipate disruptions of the normal building activities. However, a hose may cross a sidewalk, parking lot, etc.  Facilities and Services trades will be performing testing in the building during this time.


If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.  This information will also be posted on the SCS Building Outages/Important Notices blog:  www.scsbuildingoutages.blogspot.com.
