To view specific information on which buildings will be tested when, please visit the website.
This testing will simulate a fire alarm which will in turn activate the following systems:
- air conditioners and ventilation systems will briefly shut down
- automatic Fire Doors will close and Exit Doors open
- some buildings will have stairways pressurised – some occupants might hear the fans working
- the evacuation alarms will activate, in most buildings technicians will confirm a test through the PA system
There will be announcements before and after testing to ensure all occupants are aware this is a test and do not need to evacuate.You will see contractors from various companies moving around in buildings.
