Student Life Center – Fire Alarm Testing Update!

UNMC’s Facilities Management and Planning department has scheduled a fire alarm testing session for the Student Life Center on Wednesday September 28 (10am to 11am).  The testing will activate the audible and visual alarms of the fire alarm system and will be necessary as part of the renovations. There won’t be a need to evacuate the building during these times, but the alarm will be a little disruptive to any work occurring inside the buildings. The testing must be done during normal business hours due to the required inspection from the Nebraska State Fire Marshal.

Testing Schedule: New Time

Wednesday September 28, 2016 from 12:01 pm – 2:00 p.m.

 If you have any questions, please contact Chris Ehlers at 402-619-1574 or by email at christopher.ehlers@unmc.edu.  (Click on photo to enlarge.  SLC has green roof.)
