Transfer Switch Testing
Short Electric Outages

Automatic Transfer Switch testing will be conducted in several buildings on the schedule below beginning July 23 and completed on July 31, 2018.

When the test begins there will be a 10 second power interruption and then about 15 minutes later there will be a blink as the system switches back to the normal condition.

This will only affect emergency circuits that are powered by the generator during an unscheduled power outage. This will not be a total building outage.

Building occupants should turn computers off the evening before using the normal shutdown procedures. It will not be necessary to unplug this equipment. The power will be returned to normal by 7:00 a.m. so computers can be started up in the normal manner.

The testing scheduled for Saturday, July 28 will continue until 1:30 in the afternoon.

If the proposed dates and times creates an operational issue with your area, or if you have any questions or concerns please contact Al Cooper at 5-2810 or

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you,
Facilities Planning and Management
