As it turns out, fire safety inspections have not, as previously reported, ended for the academic year. In fact, random checks will probably start later this week, so make haste in putting your fire-hazard contraband out of sight.
From a ResLife email to all RA’s:
A few weeks ago, it was incorrectly reported in the Argus that fire safety inspections would not be conducted this semester. While we are thrilled that inspections were completed in all of our student residences in the fall, and that the number of violations was significantly less than previous years, we want to be sure students are continuing to abide by the fire safety guidelines, and that our residences are safe. Therefore, random checks will be conducted throughout this semester. In addition, rooms that had violations in the fall will be checked again this semester.
If you could please remind your residents to …remove any prohibited items as soon as possible (as inspections will likely begin later this week), you will be doing them a service.
Here are ResLife’s fire safety guidelines for you to review.
