Numerous campus buildings are equipped with substandard fire alarm/evacuation systems or no fire alarm systems at all. The Urbana campus has developed a program that addresses this serious deficiency in a systematic manner by upgrading the alarm system in a few buildings each year. The approach is to upgrade the alarm system in buildings with relatively high occupancy level or buildings that will have remodeling or renovation activities in them. This program will install the new Pyrotronics main sensing panel, replace existing detectors, and add additional detectors where applicable. The buildings to be upgraded by this project are Altgeld Hall and Noyes Laboratory.
