UB ensures that campus buildings are prepared in the event of an emergency.
Each building must have a Building Fire Prevention and Evacuation Plan. The fire prevention component is based on New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control (OFPC), Public Employee Safety and Health (PESH) and federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements. Once completed, building representatives will assist in implementing or when staff changes the plan.
Plans should be reviewed at least once annually.
The Building Fire Prevention and Evacuation Plan includes:
Fire evacuation drills test the ability of building occupants to evacuate a building. Resident Life areas and Assembly areas are required to have 4 annual drills. All other buildings are required to have 3 annual drills.
