Fire Alarm Testing through June 29

The following message is from the Office of Emergency Management and Safety:

Beginning Monday, June 4, the UMW Emergency Management and Safety Department will begin testing all campus fire alarms. The testing will continue through June 29.  All administrative, academic and residential buildings have been scheduled according to published events. Efforts will be made to notify occupants of the testing prior to activation. The testing will consist of short bursts of bells and internment strobe activations. These tests are a mandatory requirement of the fire code. The contractors performing these tests will make every effort to be noninvasive to personal spaces and work areas. If you have specific questions or requests, please contact Robert Parker, Institutional Fire Safety Officer, at 540/654-2108 or 540/760-6467.

Thank you,

Ruth Lovelace
Director, Emergency Management and Safety
