Recent fire alarms

Lab users and building dwellers,

We have had two false, fire alarms in the last two days. On Thursday, 
personnel from the Stanford Fire Marshal's office were performing a 
routine test of the smoke detectors. An under-the-floor smoke detector 
retripped 15 minutes after the test was complete, hence the brief, false 
fire alarm.

Today, an individual accidentally tripped a toxic gas shutdown alarm 
which automatically trips the fire alarm and hence caused the building 
evacuation and the fire trucks to arrive.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused by the false trips. The alarm systems 
are necessary to ensure the safe operation of the labs of CIS/CISX.

Dick
