Comments:

5/10/2021 7:00am: Technicians are on site.  DC team is conducting the morning huddle with the electricians and fire services staff and reviewing the playbook for the day.

5/10/2021 7:45am: Completed EPO circuit lockout/tagout to avoid accidental EPO event.

5/10/2021 12:00pm: Installation of the new fire panel is in progress.  Work will then proceed to install the new suppression systems.  Next updates will be upon completion of work or if something occurs that requires communication.

5/10/2021 3:00pm: Day 1 activities are complete.  The new fire system panel was installed, so fire alarms, strobes, and sirens are all functioning.  Removal of the Halon equipment and installation work of the FM200 system will continue Tuesday 5/11 starting at 7am as scheduled.

5/21/2021 9:30am: Work on removing the old system and installing the new system has gone very well, but one of the FM200 canisters was delayed in shipment.  The canister is scheduled for delivery on Wednesday, June 2nd.  This means that the end date for this work will be extended until June 7th.  This does not present additional risk to the ASB data center.  

06/10/2021 9:00am: Installation work is complete of the FM200 fire protection system.  We are now only waiting for the final inspection by the insurance carrier.  This is expected the 3rd week of June.
