All halls are equipped with fire extinguishers which are to be used in the event that a minor fire should occur. If you find a fire extinguisher that is not in its proper place, please notify a member of the Residential Life Staff. Tampering with extinguishers may result in a $50.00 fine. False alarms, removal or unnecessary discharge of fire extinguishers, propping doors and removal of exit signs compromise the safety of the residence halls. Residents found engaging in the above listed activities may be dismissed from the residence halls. Other fire safety violations will be dealt with through the disciplinary process. Whenever a smoke detector alarm sounds, the alarms sound only in the room where they are activated.
