Monday February 27, 2017, Early Morning Fire Alarm

Good morning,

Some residents may or may not have heard a fire alarm that occurred yesterday morning.

We would like to inform everyone on the specifics concerning the fire alarm that occurred on the 9th floor early yesterday morning Monday, February 27, 2017.

After consulting with the buildings fire alarm installer and service company specialist, it was determined that the alarm was caused by the power surge the building experienced at 5:40am Monday 2/27/2017. The surge caused the fire alarm to sound and then shut off by itself. The alarm did notify our fire alarm monitoring company who at that time dispatched the fire department. The security personnel who was on site at this time also responded to the 9th floor as well to investigate the alarm, no fire or smoke was detected. Once the fire department arrived they also determined there was no danger and the building was clear.

Due to the sensitivity of the fire / life safety system this type of alarm can happen during power surges. LADWP has experienced many power surges in the past year and has had numerous power surges in the approximately 10 years that LUMA has been open. This is the first time that a power surge has caused the fire alarm to react with an actual alarm at LUMA.

During the power surge the elevators were also automatically called down to the 1st floor just as they would for any fire alarm that occurs. Once the alarm cleared, the elevators reset and began to function normally.

The power surge was not related to a problem within the building. These surges come from LADWP.

We hope this information is helpful.
