Fire System Upgrades Beginning at Atlantic City Campus

Contractors are beginning the process to upgrade the fire system at the Worthington Atlantic City Campus.

Upgrades to the Simplex fire alarm system will include an emergency notification system. The work should not impact general operations, and the building can remain occupied during the work.

The contractor is responsible to insure safety of the work site at all times and be mindful of normal building operations. Contact the Facilities Management Office with any questions or concerns at ext. 5127.

Thank you for your patience for the duration of the project.
