Campus Fire Safety
Included as part of the reauthorization of the Higher Education Opportunity Act
Original bill was sponsored by Congressman Pascrell and Senator Lautenberg, both of New Jersey, and requires colleges to report fire safety information to the U.S. Department of Education.
Must include a statement of policy regarding emergency response and evacuation in annual report
This past year, funding was received funding from the Department of Homeland Security to start collecting fire data for campuses across the country
At the same time we looked at the requirements proposed under the Campus Fire Safety Right to Know Act
Participation in this program will help the Center better identify the problems campuses face related to fire on campus.
From this data, the Center will be able to create new training programs that will help you mitigate the risk of fire on your campus.
The data is secure and not available for others to see
Registered uses have the ability to run reports and measure their school statistics against the state, region or on a national level
The Center will also provide reports that show where problems are and from that find schools that are successfully solving problems and share their success stories
