On Tuesday, Sept. 4th (8am-3pm) and Wednesday, Sept. 5th (8am-12noon) 
there will be testing of the TGO alarm system.  Announcements will be 
made to the lab members in the SNF facility prior to any 
testing.  You are not required to evacuate the fab or the building 
during these times unless you are told to do so.

The testing results from the upgrade of several gas senors to a more 
stable sensor.  The new model of sensors will not be as susceptible 
to false readings due to temperature and humidity changes.

Lab members will see a number of staff reservations on tools during 
these times.  During the testing it is possible the gas cabinets will 
be shut down preventing the flow of process gases to these tools.  To 
prevent any tools from aborting, these tools will be off-line during 
the testing.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact a 
SNF staff member.
