Info You Should Know

* Annual fire alarm system testing

Johnson Controls is on campus conducting the annual fire alarm system testing. As each building is tested the alarm will intermittently go off. (Since this is just a test of the alarm, there is no need to leave the building when the alarm sounds.) Physical plant and security will know on a daily basis the buildings being tested. The testing will be done between 7:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Testing should be completed by Tuesday, August 21. If you have any concerns or schedule conflicts, please contact the physical plant at 812-488-2775.
