NOTICE: There will be a power outage at the Lions/LSU Clinics Building on Saturday, May 31st from 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM.  This outage will affect receptacles and lighting.  During the outage there will be emergency power to maintain emergency lights and service to some specific equipment in the building; these items are plugged into red receptacles.  The regular receptacles and lights will be off in sections of the building as the electrical risers are shut down for this work.  Between 7:00 AM and 9:00 AM, the freight elevator side ( Prieur Street side) of the building will be shut down.  Between 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM, the Bolivar side of the building will be shut down.

Please note that only the equipment already plugged into the red receptacles should be plugged into them.  Plugging in additional pieces of equipment will cause all equipment to fail if circuits are overloaded.  We expect all air conditioning, exhaust, and pumping to operate, as their power source will not be affected.
