Fire and Life Safety
Except for auxiliaries, the procurement, operation and maintenance of all fire security systems is the responsibility of the Department of Facilities & Construction Management. Fire Safety equipment includes fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, fire alarm stations, etc. In case of auxiliaries, the Department of Facilities & Construction Management maintains fire safety equipment on a reimbursement basis.
Fire Safety Tips
Fire can spread incredibly fast. A good, working smoke detector should alert you in time to get out. Don’t try to fight the fire or round up valuables, just get out of the area, call 911 and stay out!
In Residence Halls
• When the alarm sounds, GET OUT!
• Follow the rules-no candles, no hot plates
• Prevent false alarms-burned popcorn is the No.1 cause!
• Don’t overload extension cords
