12 GeV Upgrade
The accelerator was able to deliver tune beam to the Hall A dumplet. Work is progressing to provide continuous wave beam to Hall A later this week. The Hall C Super High Momentum Spectrometer effort continues to see multiple work activities in this congested area; workforces include subcontractors and Jefferson Lab employees, so remember to be aware of your surroundings at all times in these areas. Although the concrete subcontractor has finished their work, the structural subcontractor is still working on the work platform, and work will soon begin inside the SHMS to install shielding. Work in the Hall D Tagger area continues; the goal is to complete the subsystems needed to allow tune beam to this area in the 3rd Quarter of FY2014.
The first beam on a physics target in Hall A was achieved Saturday evening, March 22. Data taking with beam will continue in Hall A for spectrometer and system checkout through to the end of March or early April.

Fire Safety History
Most Jefferson Lab staff are probably unaware of this tragedy, but many of our fire safety codes originated in response to this event, including engineered controls, such as fire doors with "panic hardware" (i.e. the bars that open when pushed) on protected stairwells, fire resistant finishes and construction. Today, the number of exits is also based upon building occupation, and sprinkler systems and the limits for combustible/flammable materials in an area are all outgrowths of this event.
Even so, we all must be vigilant to prevent similar incidents. Keep your areas clean and clear and make sure the routes to the fire exits are unobstructed. If you see a potential issue that should be addressed, work with the Safety Wardens and ESH&Q staff to help keep our work environment safe.
