Monthly Traditional Residences Fire Alarm Testing
We are required by code to test the fire alarm systems in all residence buildings on a monthly basis.
The test day for traditional residences for this month is Wednesday, February 10th. Alarms will be tested between 1 and 2:30 p.m.
In order to identify this as a test, during the test, the alarm will ring for about a minute - STOP - ring for about a minute - STOP - ring again for about a minute - STOP, so that you know it is a test. You are not required to leave the building during this test.
If the ringing persists with no stops in between, it is a REAL alarm and you must leave the building immediately.
Please note that in Decew and Vallee Residences we will also be testing the Emergency Notification System. Just prior to the first ring of the fire alarm bells AND just following the final ring of the fire alarm bells, you should hear a tone, followed by a message. This is the emergency notification testing.
Students in traditional residences are notified directly by an email to their Brock email account. Additional information can be found in the Residence Handbook page 39. Students can find it in their copy or refer to the link on our Department of Residences web page.
Thank you for your cooperation.
