UNMC’s Facilities Management and Planning department has scheduled a steam shutdown for the above mentioned buildings on Thursday, November 15, 2018. The shutdown will begin at 6:00 p.m. and will last until 10:00 pm. (Approximately).
The Building Controls Group will minimize the temperatures in DOC, MSB, and Food and Nutrition. The temperatures will not be affected in DRC1, DRC2 and BCC.
This will affect:
All hot water to restrooms and kitchens on all levels.
All autoclaves, cage washers, sterilizers and similar steam driven equipment.
Cold water will remain in service.
If you have any questions, please contact Neal Buxcel at 402-559-1829 or by email at email@example.com. Since it is vital that everyone working in the buildings be aware, please mention this shutdown to your colleagues.
On Thursday November 15, 2018, the required monthly testing of the Automatic Transfer Switches (ATS), as a component of our emergency power generation, will begin at 0600 hrs. in Annex 10 (4230) and should be complete by 0700 hrs. Please remember that the testing can have an impact on all equipment plugged into the red “emergency” outlets as the transfer switches are shifted into the testing 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 the animal containment facilities will be off for two brief periods during the power transfers, but will continue to operate.
This shut off is required for routine performance testing of the automatic transfer switches per NFPA 110.
Commence Time: Thursday November 15, 2018 6:00 a.m. (0600)
Completion/End Time: Thursday November 15, 2018 7:00 a.m. (0700 hrs.) approximately
If you have any questions, please contact Neal Buxcel at ext. 9-1829. Since it is vital that everyone working in the affected areas be advised of this, please mention this electrical power interruption to your colleagues.
