The Springfield Data Center Fire System Response is used for planning and evacuation purposes. The evacuation response for this building is to evacuate the basement, 1st floor, 2nd floor and Penthouse floor in the event of any alarm activation. Occupants of each affected floor should evacuate outside the building when they get the alarm notification on their floor. (For more detailed information, see Attachment A: Springfield Data Center Emergency Procedures Occupant Section)

Alarm System Information:

The Springfield Data Center’s fire detection and alarm systems are fully automatic, and when activated, trigger the following actions:

• Springfield Fire Department is notified immediately
• The Command Center is notified and trained employees are dispatched to the location
• The alarm signal, a continuous high signal pitch, sounds throughout the building and flashing white strobe lights will be activated at all alarm stations
• Air handling equipment in the vicinity of the alarm is automatically secured to prevent smoke from being drawn through the building
• All building doors controlled by the card access system will automatically release

The activation of the fire alarm system, sprinkler head, vortex fire suppression system, smoke detector, or pull station immediately notifies Building Security that an emergency situation exists, automatically summons the Springfield Fire Department, and signals the occupants in the building to evacuate.  Most fire alarm activations will call for evacuation. It is critical that all personnel exit the building immediately.  Do not re-enter the building until the Springfield Fire Department gives permission to do so.
