Fire Safety

The Department of Public Safety encourages all members of the College community to become informed about fire safety. The information and links below outline many helpful procedures as well as College regulations pertaining to fire safety.

To Prevent Fires

Smoke Carefully: If you smoke, DO NOT smoke in buildings on campus or near flammable materials. Use large ashtrays and be sure ashes, matches, and cigarette ends are cold before you dump them. Don't smoke while intoxicated.

Cook only in approved areas using tested and safe appliances. Stay nearby while appliances are on. Clean up grease and appliances as soon as possible.

Be Careful with Electricity! Use only laboratory tested appliances. Don't overload outlets.
