Report of a non-toxic refrigerant leak at Alder Hall. Initially the alarm was thought to be a faulty detection panel. It was later determined that the alarm was in response to a legitimate release of a non-toxic, oxygen-displacing gas that was the result of a leaky valve. There was no threat to the public or the occupants of the building from the material.
