Campus Fire Safety Report

As a part of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), federal law requires colleges and universities to disclose certain timely and annual information about campus fire incidents and safety policies for all on campus housing facilities. All public and private institutions of postsecondary education participating in federal student aid programs are subject to this reporting. A paper copy of this report is available upon request in the Campus Safety Office.

Widenhouse, Rimview, and Jorgenson Halls are equipped with automatic sprinkler fire suppression systems. Anderson and Widenhouse Halls utilize interior alarms and warning lights through the corridors and common areas, with Rimview and Jorgenson Halls employing large exterior alarms, as well as interior alarms within the common areas.

Policies concerning the use of specific electrical appliances can be found in the Residence Hall Policy Handbook.

Fire drills are conducted three times per year, with further testing as necessary. A log of fire drill dates and results is housed in the Campus Safety Office.
