Fire safety equipment is present in every building on campus, academic, non-academic and housing. This equipment can include fire alarm systems, special hazard suppression systems, sprinkler systems, kitchen hood suppression systems, fire extinguishers and other building equipment such as exit lights and emergency lights. The fire safety equipment varies in each space based upon the potential for specific hazards within the building. For detailed information relating to fire safety equipment, contact EHS at (205) 348-5905.

Anytime a fire alarm sounds in a campus building, everyone should evacuate in a rapid and organized manner.  Once outside everyone should gather at the pre-determned location for the building.  No one should re-enter the building until cleared to do so by the Tuscaloosa Fire Department, UAPD or EHS.
