This message was emailed to students, faculty and staff on March 3 by the Office of Communications and External Relations:
Early next week, the University Police Department is asking for the campus community’s help if a fire alarm is activated in a University building.
Between approximately 7 a.m. March 6 and 7 a.m. March 7, community members who become aware of an activated fire alarm are asked to call the University Police Department immediately at 336-758-5911 (911 from a University phone).
During that 24-hour time, the University Police Department will be moving its communications center from Davis Residence Hall to Alumni Hall. Fire alarms will sound in buildings during the move, but the automatic system that alerts the University Police Department and the Winston-Salem Fire Department will not work. Without a call from community members, the University Police Department and the Winston-Salem Fire Department may not be aware of the alarm activation.
Once the alarm systems in buildings resume operating normally, an email will be sent to students, faculty and staff.
Fire alarms in the following buildings will be affected:
–All Reynolda Campus buildings
–Athletic Facilities off campus, including Bridger Field House, the Indoor Tennis Center, the Clinical Research Center and the east concourse of BB&T Field
–Graylyn Center buildings, including the Manor House, Bernard Cottage, the Mews, the Gardener’s Cottage and the Management House
–Houses associated with Wake Forest on Polo Road (1109, 1115, 1125, 1141-B, 1145, 1157 and 1210) and Rosedale Circle (109/111)
Responses to emergency and non-emergency calls will not be affected during the move. A non-emergency number at the police department is 336-758-5591 (5591 from a University phone).
If anyone has questions about the move of the communications center to Alumni Hall, they may contact Wake Forest Emergency Manager August Vernon at 336-758-3377.
