To begin prepping for the switchgear replacement to take place later this year, the Office of Facilities Management has scheduled an electrical outage for the entire College of Business building on Sunday, October 30th, 2016, beginning at 7:00 a.m. to last until 7:00 p.m. The building’s emergency generator will remain operational during this outage, but will support egress lighting and life safety only. No one will be allowed in the building without an escort from Facilities Management and/or the Police Department.
To prevent any possible damage, Facilities Management recommends the turning off of all electronic equipment in the offices including computers, scanners, and copiers before this outage (these devices do not need to be unplugged from their electrical outlets). All refrigerator/freezers should be cleared of any temperature-sensitive items. 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 Toby Buhrkuhl, Facilities Management Electric Shop Supervisor, at (972) 832-1490 or Jeff Johnson, Facilities Management Director, at (817) 798-8456.
