  • UD’s Environmental Health and Safety Department conducted the annual fire pump testing at the CPC. This is to ensure the building’s water pump has the pressure it needs to get water to the sprinklers.  Here, Darren Lyons of Simplex Grinnell, the assisting contractor, checks the readings on the pressure gauges as he observes the water flow during the test.
