The college’s annual New York State Fire Inspection is scheduled to take place April 4 – 15.  In preparation for the inspection, please take note of the following items in your areas:

  1. Fire doors must be kept closed and door stops are NOT permitted.
  2. Hallways and stairways must be clear and free of clutter.
  3. Access to fire extinguishers must be clear and free of obstructions.
  4. All appliances must be plugged directly into outlets or power strips.  Extension cords are NOT permitted.
  5. All light switches and outlets must be protected with cover plates.
  6. Missing ceiling tiles must be replaced.
  7. The accumulation of combustible materials in office and storerooms must be kept to a minimum.
  8. In rooms with sprinklers, 18 inches of clear space must be maintained between the ceiling and any obstruction.  In rooms without sprinklers, 24 inches of clear space must be maintained between the ceiling and any obstruction.
  9. Candles are NOT permitted, except in Christ the King Chapel.

Assistance with the above is greatly appreciated.  Work orders can be submitted to address building related issues (missing ceilings tiles, electrical cover plates, etc.).  It is important to maintain a fire safe campus.
