  • There are a few fire alarm system devices that need to be replaced on the 5th and 10th floors of the Nursing/Allied Health Building and the contractor is securing these now. We still anticipate receiving approval from the State Fire Marshal to reoccupy the building as scheduled.
  • The new emergency telephones are being installed in the MEB elevators. When completed, the State Elevator Inspector can complete his inspection and certify them for use.

    • The more extensive work of removing drywall, etc. on the 1st floor of the Nursing/Allied Health Building is still in progress.
    • The contractor will be cleaning elevator pits this weekend.
