Fire Safety

The campus fire safety officer is responsible for assisting in the development and administration of fire safety programs throughout the College to ensure compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws, regulations, codes and standards concerning fire and life safety for all on-campus constituents.

The campus fire safety officer works directly with the local fire marshals and the director of facilities to ensure that there are no potential fire hazards or related-situations that could lead to risks in health and safety, and will be responsible for scheduling fire drills and other emergency evacuation drills. He also works as a technical expert who provides counsel on fire prevention strategies to the College administration, inspects buildings to identify potential issues with facilities, equipment and other items that may be a source for fires, and provides data for the Annual Fire and Safety Report or other required reporting, as necessary.
