Fire Detection

Fire alarm systems provide a rapid means of notifying building occupants of a fire emergency.  These systems must be kept in operating condition at all times.  Vandalism of these systems may result in injury or loss of life during an actual fire emergency. Learn the locations of smoke detectors and be sensitive to avoidable activation (cooking, smoke, cigarette smoke, aerosols, steam etc.).  Don’t hang things from them or cover them up as smoke detectors alert you while there’s still time to escape from a fire.  Pull stations are located in your exit paths, usually near an exit or stairwell door.  Simply initiating the pull station will activate the building alarm system and alert the University Police Department.
