Campus Code Compliance & Fire Safety

Campus Code Compliance & Fire Safety (CCC&FS) manages the university's fire and life safety programs and the existing building and fire code compliance functions. The associate directors are designated as the Campus Authority having Jurisdiction (AHJ) for the application of the university's life safety, fire and construction codes. Reported fires are always made visible in the annual fire safety report, and all work done by the department complies with facilities standards.

CCC&FS administers:

  • the Intergovernmental Agreement for Fire Protection Services, a campus fire safety program
  • the campus inspection and testing program for fixed fire protection systems
  • CCC&FS also provides plan review services for campus construction projects to ensure accessibility and safety guidelines are met.
