Fire Alarm Testing

Posted from Wednesday, May 15, 2019 through Friday, May 31, 2019

From May 20 through May 31, 2019, fire alarms will be tested on the SMSU campus. You will hear very short bursts of alarm noise, but all will be over very quickly! Staff will work to schedule the testing to cause the least amount of interference and inconvenience as possible. You do not need to evacuate the building during the short burst testing.

In the event of an actual fire emergency, the alarms noise is loud and sustained; you would recognize the difference in an actual emergency and would be required to leave the building immediately.

Staff and fire alarm contractors will ultimately test 27 fire alarm systems, 14 fire sprinkler systems, and 30 fire hydrants during this time frame.
