Fire Safety Tips & Information

Fire & Life Safety, takes a proactive approach to EVMS safety. The responsibilities of this office are numerous, but all end with the common goal of protecting students, faculty, employees, visitors and property of EVMS.

The Fire Safety Program is responsible for planning and administering the EVMS Fire Prevention and Life Safety inspection programs. This includes review of all new building construction and renovations to insure compliance with EVMS fire protection standards and applicable state, local, and national fire and life safety standards.

Fire inspections are conducted every week. Each building gets walked through looking for fire and other safety hazards. In addition, fire exit drills are conducted in all EVMS buildings. The purpose of these drills is to assure that the EVMS is as safe as possible, and if an emergency does occur, everyone is familiar with what actions to take.
