Power is scheduled to be cut off in the Fort IRC today from about 5:15 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. The outage will be the first of three scheduled during the installation of a new emergency generator for the building.
The next power outage is tentatively scheduled for Saturday October 20, for approximately 8 hours.
The final power outage is scheduled for about 48 hours during Thanksgiving break from Friday November 23 through Saturday November 24.
The new generator will provide electricity for the entire building except for the main chiller. Occupants of the IRC should shut down all electrical equipment 30 minutes before each scheduled power outage to prevent damage to hard drives, power supplies, control panels, etc.
For questions or more information, contact Chris Couch, IRC facilities manager, at 285-3190 or via email.
