Building alarm system changes on Saturdays

On Saturday, September 20 and 27 and October 4 and 11 between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., the FIRUS system will undergo a software upgrade and system functional tests. This means that the FIRUS system will be off-line at all buildings on the Fermilab site during this time; the system will not automatically notify the Security Communication Center of an active Fire-Security-Utility alarm. The local building fire alarm systems and other independent emergency systems will work only locally. Pull-stations will be functional during this period and should still be utilized in the event of a fire to evacuate the building but must be followed by a call to ext. 3131 from a Fermilab office phone or 630-840-3131 from a cell phone. Duress security alarms, which report directly to FIRUS, will also not function during this time.

New plan for U.S. particle physics

The 10-year P5 report was approved by the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel on May 22. On May 28, Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer led an all-hands meeting to discuss the P5 report and how Fermilab's scientific program will align with the plan. A video of the talk and the presentation slides are available in the online archive.

See Nigel Lockyer's August 19 Director's Corner for a P5 progress update.
