Impact for the following buildings: Specialized Research Facil-East, Bernard Becker Medical Library, Farrell Learning & Teaching Center, McDonnell Medical Sciences Bldg, Olin Residence Hall.
Fire alarm systems in speaker-equipped buildings on the Medical School campus were recently outfitted with ALERTUS emergency notification modules to allow for an emergency voice message with safety instructions to be broadcast through the current fire alarm system in the event of a serious University-wide emergency (such as a tornado warning or active shooter on campus). As a part of this installation, a significant number of campus buildings’ fire alarm systems will undergo a period of testing to ensure proper system operation. There is NO NEED OR EXPECTATION FOR EVACUATION OR ANY OTHER ACTION TO BE TAKEN by the campus community during these tests. Please visit https://facilities.med.wustl.edu/2014/08/alertus-testing/ for detailed information about the testing and what you can expect.
