Fire Safety

The fire safety program's main focus is to prevent and reduce the loss of life and property resulting from fire related incidents. We strive to provide our campus community with the tools and knowledge required to maintain a fire safe environment.

Fire safety should be everyone's concern, and each employee and student at the university should be aware of the unique fire hazards of a teaching and research university. We can all assist in creating a safe environment by familiarizing ourselves with common fire hazards and prevention practices.

Our fire safety program includes hands-on fire safety training coordinated through the UC Learning Center.

For additional information about fire safety training, see our Safety Training page.

If you have any additional questions regarding fire safety, please feel free to contact the fire marshal.
