Fire alarm and life safety provides monitoring & control of all fire alarm and life safety systems in campus buildings along with maintenance, testing, and trouble-shooting operating problems associated with these systems

Utility Services' Fire & Life Safety Systems is responsible for maintaining fire alarm systems for (55) educational buildings on the UH campus, including (14) fire pumps. The fire alarm system network is monitored (24) hours a day, seven days a week through the UH police dispatch.

Fire & Life Safety staff complete annual inspections to ensure alarms are functioning properly, test fire pumps on a weekly basis, perform preventative maintenance, and install fire alarm devices.

We also assist the Fire Marshall's office with monthly fire drills for the Charter School (Melcher Gymnasium Building), Child Development Lab (Cameron Building), and Child Care (Child Care Building), as well as with acceptance tests of new fire alarm installations, burn permits, and fire protection shutdown permits.
