Fire alarm testing in Hale Library this week

By Steve Galitzer

Fire alarms will be tested in Hale Library today through Thursday. There may be alarms sounded during those dates; however, the sounding of the horns will be limited to hours which will affect the least number of people. Please bear with us during the tests.

Kansas State University is required to comply with the International Fire Code. The code requires fire alarm systems to be inspected annually. Inspection of fire alarm systems includes testing all components of the system: the fire panel, pull stations, sounding devices, strobe devices, smoke detectors and heat detectors.
