Emergency fire equipment to be tested in various buildings this month

By Steve Galitzer

Between June 10-14 SimplexGrinnell will test the emergency fire equipment in:

  • Bluemont Hall
  • Dole Hall
  • Hal Ross Flour Mill
  • International Grain Program Conference Center
  • International Student Center
  • Justin Hall
  • Leadership Studies Building
  • Shellenberger Hall

Between June 16-21 SimplexGrinnell will test the emergency fire equipment in:

  • Chem/Biochem Building
  • King Hall
  • KSU Foundation Building

To reduce the number of building occupants interrupted by the sound of alarms, the fire alarm systems will be tested every evening between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Police dispatch, facilities and the Manhattan Fire Department will be notified for each building at the start of the test. Please refer your comments and questions to safety@k-state.edu or call 785-532-5856.
