Fire Safety Policies

Residential areas are inspected on a regular basis for the purpose of health and safety of every resident. Regular room inspections by the residence life staff are conducted to ensure the adherence to campus fire safety policies. Additionally, residential areas are inspected yearly by the Canton Fire Department. Violations identified during inspections are reported and followed up by residence hall staff. 

Members of the student body are expected to aid in the establishment of a safe and secure campus environment. As a result, students are expected to refrain from behavior that may pose a risk to others and/or self. 

Examples of behavior which constitute a violation of this Community Standard include, but are not limited to: 

  • Tampering with fire safety equipment (including removing batteries from or disabling smoke detectors)
  • Setting off a false alarm
  • Failing to evacuate a facility during a fire drill
  • Possession, sale, or use of fireworks or any other explosive or combustible material on University property or in the surrounding community.
