Fire and Life Safety involves everyone in every area of the university and refers to the prevention of fire, accidents, injury, and property damage. Through inspections, fire safety equipment is checked and maintained; food safety standards are adhered; and safety concerns such as frayed electrical cords, trip hazards, broken or inappropriate equipment and fire hazards are identified and removed. Through design and plan review, architects and engineers are assisted in ensuring that fire and life safety measures are built into areas under construction. Through emergency management, assistance is available to develop specific evacuation plans. Through training, classes are available for evacuation planning, fire and life safety, fire extinguishers, and food safety.
