Staff Training


Fire Safety & Extinguisher Class

An online fire safety course has been developed, and it is available 24/7. This course covers material concerning fire hazards and fire mitigation on campus, as well as proper decision-making in the event of a fire.  The course is available only to university employees, on campus, using their campus logon credentials. 

View the Fire Safety Training presentation (PowerPoint, PPT file) 

Note: Due to lack of adequate space on campus, the optional "hands on" live fire training session is not currently available. 

Should an individual group or department wish to have a presentation that covers specifics of a building or particular fire safety concerns, the campus Fire & Life Safety Officer remains available to provide training at any location. 

Contact the Fire & Life Safety Officer for inspections, classes, or fire safety information.
