In order to complete upgrades to the emergency fire pump system in the Life Science Building, a temporary electrical outage for the entire building will be required. We intend to schedule this outage for Sunday, March 5, 2017, beginning at 7:00 a.m. lasting until 12:00 noon. The building’s emergency generator will remain operational during this outage to support egress lighting, life safety, and select lab equipment. If anyone has recently purchased lab equipment that must be served by emergency power and you’re unsure if it has been connected to the generator, please contact either Jeff Johnson or Toby Buhrkuhl at the e-mail addresses shown below. No one will be allowed in the building without an escort from Facilities Management and/or the Police Department during this outage.
To prevent any possible damage, we recommend you turn off all electronic equipment in the offices including computers, scanners, and copiers before leaving for the weekend (these devices do not need to be unplugged from their electrical outlets). Please let your faculty and staff members know as necessary.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, concerns, or special requirements during this time frame, please contact either Jeff Johnson, Facilities Management Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Toby Buhrkuhl, Facilities Management Electric Shop Supervisor, at email@example.com .
