Building 102: Pre-Fire Plan

    Response Action:

    1. Make initial assessment of the situation.
    2. If warranted call 9-911 and report fire.
    3. Evacuate occupants.
    4. Report to assembly point

    The east side has a double and a single pedestrian door and a rollup door. The south side has two pedestrian doors.

    Building Exposure:
    The ESR is not in the close proximity to any other building.

    The inside of the ESR is an oxygen deficiency hazard zero (ODH 0) area. ODH training is required for entry. There is a high noise area in the proximity of the compressor when it is running. There is lubrication oil in the compressor. There is cryogenic liquid helium and nitrogen inside the equipment and the piping. Cryogenic piping outside the building to the west and north may be coated with ice and frost.

    The building is normally unoccupied.

    Building 102 is constructed of steel and rests on a concrete pad. The south wall is partially concrete block. This building contains a ventilation system which is appropreate for a cryogenic facility. The same system would be excellent for removing smoke.

    Fire Protection:
    Building 102 has a sprinkler system. The PI valve and hose connections are at the east end. There is a fire alarm system which has two pull stations and six thermal sensors in the ceiling. There is one CO2 fire extinguisher.

    Loss Potential:
    The loss of Building 102 would seriously impact experiments in Halls A, B, and C because it is their main supply of cryogenic helium, which is essentialy for superconducting magnets.
