BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will test its emergency lockdown security systems capabilities in Marilyn Horne Hall in downtown Bradford as well as in several on-campus buildings on the morning of Nov. 20.
During the test, those inside the building will be able to exit. At each building, doors will be locked for about 15 minutes. During that time, signs will say the test is happening, and university police will be on hand to help people enter buildings, if needed.
The test will not activate any alarms and should not disrupt normal business operations.
In addition to Marilyn Horne Hall, the systems will be tested at the George B. Duke Engineering and Information Technologies Building and the Richard E. and Ruth McDowell Sport and Fitness Center on campus. Residence halls that will be tested are Livingston Alexander House, Reed-Coit House and Sarah B. Dorn House.
The new electronic lockdown security systems will allow university buildings to be locked down from either the Bradford or Pittsburgh campuses in case of an emergency.
