Shutdown Schedule:

 Commence Time:     Saturday, April 22, 2017, at 6:00 a.m.

 Completion Time:    Saturday, April 22, 2017, at 12:01 p.m.  (Approximately)

ELECTRICAL POWER INTERRUPTION (All Levels) — Administration Center (ADC) and College of Nursing (CON) (#4)

On Monday, April 24, 2017, there will be extended or intermittent interruptions (shut offs) of normal electrical power to the main electrical switchboard that serves all levels of the following buildings:

  • Administration Center (ADC)
  • College of Nursing (CON)

This will cause a power outage to all receptacle outlets, computers, lighting, air handling units, supply fans, exhaust fans, fume hoods, motors, etc. throughout each building.  Depending on the building, the power outage could be as short as a “blink” or last up to 5 minutes.  If possible, it is recommended that computers and other pieces of sensitive electrical equipment be shut down prior to the scheduled electrical interruption as a safety precaution.

This shut off is required in order to replace the pad-mount transformer serving the Student Life Center (SLC).

Interruption Schedule:  (4th)

Commence Time:         Monday, April 24, 2017, 6:00 p.m. (1800 hrs.)

Completion/End Time:         Monday, April 24, 2016, 6:45 p.m. (1845 hrs.)                                                   (Approximately)
