Smoke Detectors and Fire Extinguishers Testing

Smoke detector tests are conducted each semester during the academic year and during the summer (3 times a year).  Fire Extinguisher inspections are conducted annually each January by Jorgensen and Co. and organized through Plant Operations.  In addition to the regularly scheduled inspections, Ag Operations Maintenance Technicians periodically test the smoke detectors and fire extinguishers during routine maintenance.

In the upcoming year, Ag Operations will prepare a scheduled timetable for Smoke Detector and Fire Extinguisher testing and inspection.
