    Fire Safety: supports a safe campus environment


Fire Safety Tip

As we draw closer to the end of another academic year, many first year students will be searching around for a place to live next year!  

Here are a few things you should look for in an off-campus residence:

  • There should be working smoke alarms (provided and installed by the landlord) on every floor and outside of all sleeping areas
  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) alarms are also a requirement, as of April 15, 2015, in all residential occupancies that have a fuel-burning appliance or fireplace.
  • Be sure that each occupant has at least two ways out of a building in case of a fire
  • Having a fire extinguisher in the building is also a good idea, especially in cooking areas!
