Students were concerned that several fire alarms have gone off at the University Union in recent weeks, but University Union director Zane Reif said there’s nothing to be worried about.

The building, which opened late last semester, is still in the adjustment period, as it opened several new retail spaces and restaurants earlier in the semester.

Reif said invisible laser beams would set off the fire alarm if blocked by smoke, a person or maybe a balloon.

These laser beams are adept at smoke detection, but their sensitive nature requires attention from Union staff.

“They are designed for smoke, but if people are working on the ceiling, they need to have them disabled before they block them,” Reif said.
