Regents approve hangar lease, fire alarm upgrade

The Board of Regents approved the following items at its meeting Thursday:

New Survival Flight hangar planned

The Board of Regents approved leasing space for 20 years in a new building being constructed by the Livingston County Emergency Medical Services department at the Livingston County Spencer J. Hardy Airport. The move from the currently leased space at the airport will improve the U-M Hospitals and Health Centers Survival Flight service operations. The Hospitals and Health Centers will fund the approximately $2.6 million leasehold improvements project scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2014.

Fire alarm work planned at University Hospital, Taubman Health Care Center

The fire alarm control panels at University Hospital and the A. Alfred Taubman Health Care Center will be upgraded to connect the systems in the two buildings and improve central monitoring abilities. The $3 million project is being funded from Hospitals and Health Centers' resources and is scheduled to be completed next summer.
