Munroe-Meyer Inst. (All Levels)

(MMI, HBM, HBM Additions 1 and 2)

On Sunday March 22, 2015, all “Normal Power” to MMI, HBM, and HBM Additions will be turned off to accommodate the repair of a high voltage, pad-mounted switch that serves the MMI complex.   All equipment, air handlers, exhaust fans, lighting and receptacles that are not connected to emergency power, (red outlets) will be without power for the duration of this repair.   All non-essential equipment should be turned off, i.e.; computers. All equipment, air handlers, exhaust fans, lighting, and receptacles connected to emergency will see two brief interruptions at the start and end of the scheduled times for each ATS, (automatic transfer switch), to switch to emergency, then back to normal.

Interruption Schedule:

Commence Time:            Sunday March 22, 2015, 1:00 pm (1300 hrs.)

Completion/End Time:    Sunday March 22, 2015, 2:00 pm (1400 hrs.)

If you have any questions, please contact Matt Monaghan at  402-559-7188, or cell 402-981-5396.  Since it is vital that everyone working in the affected areas be advised of this, please mention this electrical power interruption to your colleagues.


Munroe-Meyer Inst., (MMI, HBM, HBM Additions 1&2)


On Wednesday, March 18, 2015, a test of the Automatic Transfer Switches (ATS), as a component of our emergency power generation, will begin at 7:30 a.m. in MMI, HBM, HBM Additions 1&2 and should be complete by 8:30 a.m..  Please remember that ATS testing can have an impact on all equipment plugged into the red “emergency” outlets, lighting, Air Handling Units, Exhaust Fans, and other equipment connected to emergency power as the transfer switches are shifted into the emergency position and then again as the switch is moved back to “normal”.   This work will not affect “normal” receptacle outlets, computers, and/or lighting that are not connected to “emergency” back-up power.   Air handling units and exhaust fans that serve all levels will be off for two brief periods during the power transfers, but should continue to operate.

Interruption Schedule:

Commence Time:                  Wednesday, March 18, 2015,  7:30 a.m. 

Completion/End Time:          Wednesday, March 18, 2015, 8:30 a.m.                                                             (approximately)
