Fire Alarm Building Evacuation Event

Date: Wed, 15 Oct 2008 14:09:59 -0400

The fire alarm and building evacuation event is now cleared and normal building operations have resumed.

The source of the alarm was over-cooked food in a microwave oven in the kitchenette on the third floor south, office side.

The department appreciates the rapid response of police, fire departments, and FOD in responding to the alarm.

The department appreciates the patience and cooperation of all occupants in responding promptly to the evacuation instruction.

The department requests that users of microwave ovens reflect on, and benefit from, the lessons learned from this event.
