Fire Safety and Prevention

All University faculty, staff, students and guests are expected to adhere to all fire-safety procedures. This includes the vacation of any building during a fire-drill. University fire safety procedures will be explained to every University resident at the beginning of the academic year.

The tampering or removal of any fire safety equipment (e.g., smoke detectors, sprinkler systems, extinguishers…) is not permitted. Blocking or impeding exits or entrances to any University owned property is not permissible at any time.

The intentional lighting of a fire in any capacity is prohibited without express written permission from the Facilities Office and/or the Physical Plant.  All approved fires must be kept within the established guidelines, and contained within a University approved location.
