NOTICE:Heat Advisory: ALL SCHOOL OF MEDICINE BUILDINGS

Service(s) Affected: HVAC and Electrical

Notice Date: 07/26/2016

Building(s) Affected:

All School Of Medicine Buildings(ALL)
Whole Building Affected: YES


Advisory:
The University is expecting to experience a “RED” day, i.e. that one of the five peak electrical demand hours this summer will occur today or later this week. The National Weather Service has projected daytime outside temperature in the mid 90's with seasonal humidity levels for the Philadelphia area. These conditions place extra demands on our cooling, electrical and HVAC systems. We ask that you and other building occupants please turn off, where possible and practical, all non-essential lights, appliances and equipment. This will reduce the University’s electric demand and help to reduce inside temperatures. Thank you in advance for your help.
