     AUDIBLE SPEAKER TESTING                                   
   CAMPUS-WIDE FRIDAY – June 21, 2013  8:00am to 3:30pm  

To all,

As part of the Campus Mass Communication project, it is necessary for Facility Services and Siemens to conduct a final start-up of the testing of the audible speaker system throughout the main campus . The audible speaker test is scheduled to occur Friday, June 21, 2013.

 We apologize for the inconvenience this testing may cause. The testing will NOT be conducted continuously throughout the entire day. The testing will only occur for brief intervals of time. You can expect either a voice notifying that the testing is being conducted or music will be played. In addition, personnel from Facility Services, Campus Police, University Safety & Assurances, and Building Chairs will be in and out of the public areas of the testing locations to determine the functionality of the speakers. 

Audible Speaker Testing will occur within the following buildings:

           Chemistry, Cunningham, Engineering & Mathematical Sciences, Golda Meir Library, Klotsche, Pavilion, Student Union, and Sandburg Towers  on June 21 Friday 8 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Please contact Kimberly Jackson ( for a map of areas outside that will have Outdoor Speaker Testing. The speaker range, indicated by a fan-shaped symbol on the map, illustrates the angle and distance in which each speaker can easily be heard.

Please report any problems or mission-critical functions that will be impacted by the speaker testing to the Trouble Report Center of Facility Services (x4742). This will provide one-source reporting for potential speaker testing impacts to a service center that is always staffed during regular business hours, and which can collect and distribute notifications to the appropriate parties to investigate the best course of action to minimize outage impacts to the end users. Facility Services will investigate and work with end users to mitigate, to the maximum extent possible, the impacts to mission critical equipment and functions identified by end users in advance of the speaker testing. Again, please contact our Trouble Report Center dispatcher at 229-4742 with questions or concerns.
