Fires

A structural or building fire is an uncontrolled fire in a structure located in a populated area that threatens life and property.  All fires are dangerous and pose a threat to persons and property; fires which exceed existing response, containment, or evacuation capabilities are the most threatening to the Eastern Virginia Medical School Community.  These incidents require response and intervention by the local fire department.
