With the recent power outages in the Fredericksburg area and at UMW we would like to revisit the purpose of emergency lighting.
- Emergency lighting will operate for a period of 1 1/2 hours in the event of failure of normal lighting and are arranged to provide illumination for safety purposes only;
- Emergency lighting systems are not capable of illuminating a building for occupancy.
These systems are only used for effective and efficient evacuation.
Feel free to contact the office of emergency management and safety with any questions.
