Fire Prevention

The Ohio State University is committed to providing a fire-safe environment for its students, faculty, staff, patients and visitors, and to protect its property through an effective fire prevention, protection, preparedness and response program. The purpose of this Fire and Life Safety Compliance Guide is to assist the university community in working together to maintain an environment that reduces the risk of fire hazards.

The Fire Prevention and Life Safety Policy outlines how the university proposes to safeguard life and property from the hazards of fire and explosion arising from storage, handling or use of materials or equipment, and from conditions hazardous to life and property. The requirements of the policy are based upon compliance with Ohio Fire Code (2007), enforced by the State of Ohio Fire Marshal Office, State of Ohio Department of Commerce, as well as other applicable federal, state, and local codes and standards.
