Student Life Center – Fire Alarm Testing

UNMC’s Facilities Management and Planning department has scheduled fire alarm testing session for the Student Life Center on Wednesday June 29 (5am to 5pm) and Wednesday July 6 (11am to 3pm).  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 very disruptive to any work occurring inside the buildings. The testing on July 6 must be done during normal business hours due to the required inspection from the Nebraska State Fire Marshal.

Testing Schedule:

Wednesday June 29, 2016 from 5:00pm – 5:00 a.m.

Wednesday July 6, 2016 from 11:00am – 3:00 p.m.

If you have any questions, please contact  Chris Ehlers at 402-619-1574 or by email at christopher.ehlers@unmc.edu.
