Fire Safety


The University of Florida Fire Safety program provides assistance and guidance to faculty, staff, students, researchers and guests in university facilities for all fire safety matters. The office provides interpretations of fire safety regulations and assists with compliance with these requirements.

The program is the liaison with the State Fire Marshal’s office and submits responses to fire safety inspection reports, submits construction projects for review, receives the approved plans and distributes them to various construction entities on campus.

The program performs fire safety inspections for all buildings that do not fall under the jurisdiction of the State Fire Marshal. This includes all Greek living facilities and various buildings on campus that are not state owned facilities.

Fire Equipment Services, a unit of Environmental Health & Safety, provides necessary testing, inspection and maintenance of all fire extinguishers, kitchen hood suppression systems on a monthly and annual basis for university buildings located on campus and around the state of Florida. Currently there are 9,656 extinguishing systems actively being inspected by this department. This group is responsible for maintaining required coverage in existing, renovated and new construction spaces for all University buildings and for all Fraternity & Sorority houses associated with the University of Florida.

The program performs mandated fire exit drills in all required buildings on an annual basis.

The program monitors the University of Florida false alarm reduction program.
