When you entering, you will hear a quiet beeping. You have 60 seconds to enter your temporary, four digit code. The beeping will stop and then you are free to unlock the doors with the hex key on the nearby windowsill.


Check that everyone has left the building and finish closing procedures as follows:

  1. Secure all accesible exterior doors, including locking the front doors with the hex key.
  2. With the front door closed & locked, arm the alarm system. You now have 60 seconds to leave the building. Once the door closes behind you, check to ensure the door is locked & latched.

If you experience any trouble with the facility, call Darrin Nicholson 509-596-6429 or Tracy Kapelski 253-230-0297.
