A fire alarm interrupted a speech by San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr at the University of San Francisco this morning.

The alarm went off at about 8:50 a.m. as Suhr was giving the keynote address at a law enforcement leadership symposium attended by police chiefs from throughout the state.

The McLaren Conference Center was evacuated and dozens of people were standing outside as of 9 a.m. A nearby dormitory was also affected, with groggy students who appeared to have just woken up standing near the building.

There was no sign of any fire, and a fire dispatcher said the department had not been notified of any problems at USF this morning.

The two-day symposium, titled “Unique Leadership Challenges: Major Events, Disasters and Terrorism,” began this morning and will continue Tuesday.
