Fire Safety

The primary goal of the fire and life safety standards is for building occupants to avoid injury or death during a fire or other emergency. The Campus Building Evacuation Procedure has been prepared to ensure the orderly and complete evacuation of campus buildings in the event of an emergency and/or the activation of alarm system.

Reporting a fire

All fires, no matter how trivial are to be reported to Cal Poly University Police dispatch (911 or 756-2281).  This accomplishes several things:

  • The Fire Department will respond to any emergent/active fire and extinguish
  • An incident log will be entered
  • The State Fire Marshall will be notified of the fire, a legal requirement

If you have extinguished the fire yourself, notify Cal Poly University Police dispatch (756-2281) so that fire information is recorded and the State Fire Marshall is notified.
