Fire Safety and Fireworks
Fire safety devices and equipment shall not be tampered with to include willfully setting off a false alarm. Tampering with fire safety equipment and the use of fireworks is a violation of state and city fire codes and will be referred to local law enforcement agencies. Violations may result in a fine not exceeding $1000 and/or imprisonment up to one (1) year.
In case of fire calll 9-911. State your name, the name of the residence hall or building, and the building's location. Do not assume someone else has called the fire department. Notify a Residence Life staff member immediately if you are in a residence hall or a Building Manager if you are in one of the other buildings. If the fire is small, attempt to extinguish it with one of the extinguishers on the floor. Isolate the fire by shutting the nearby doors.
