Fire Prevention Plan

OSHA's Fire Prevention Plan regulation requires a written plan that contains specific program elements. This plan addresses fire emergencies that could possibly occur on campus.

This Fire Prevention Plan is intended to provide pertinent information to faculty, staff and students in order to reduce the possibility of fires and to specify the type of equipment to use in case of fire. This plan addresses the following issues:

  • Major university fire hazards and proper handling and storage procedures.
  • Potential ignition sources for fires and their control procedures.
  • The type of fire protection equipment or systems which can control a fire involving them.
  • Personnel responsible for maintenance of equipment and systems installed to prevent or control ignition of fires and for control of fuel source hazards.

Under this plan, faculty, staff and students will be informed of the plan's purpose, preferred means of reporting fires and other emergencies, types of evacuations to be used in various emergency situations and the alarm system. The plan is closely tied to our emergency action plan where procedures are described for emergency escape route assignments, accounting for all employees after emergency evacuation has been completed and rescue and medical duties for those employees who perform them.
