Power outage - Stirling hall

A brief power outage will affect the 1st floor of Stirling Hall this afternoon (Tuesday, July 29th) between 4:00 pm and 4:30 pm while electricians hook up power to a new piece of equipment in room 161B.

As a precautionary measure, Physical Plant Services is recommending that building occupants on all floors shutdown computers and research equipment prior to 4:00 pm. Power will remain available to the building's fire alarm system, so there are no fire safety implications resulting from this work.
