Emergency fire equipment to be tested in various buildings in May

By Steve Galitzer

Between May 6-17 SimplexGrinnell will test the emergency fire equipment in:

  • Ackert Hall
  • Anderson Hall
  • Beach Art Museum
  • Bushnell Hall
  • Chalmers Hall
  • Danforth/All Faiths
  • Dykstra Hall
  • East Stadium
  • Eisenhower Hall
  • Fielder Hall
  • Power Plant

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.

The quarterly sprinkler system testing for all campus buildings will be conducted between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily during May. Testing of the sprinkler systems will not disrupt the building occupants.

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.
