Campus Fire Safety Reporting

Regulations under the Higher Education Opportunity and Affordability Act require fire safety reporting for on-campus housing facilities at all colleges and universities. These reports serve to introduce and increase fire safety awareness on college and university campuses across the nation to provide students and their families with critical fire safety information. This report parallels University Police Department efforts in crime prevention.

Please take time to review our fire safety information, policies and statistics. Let us know if you have any questions regarding fire safety by contacting us at 910.962.3057 or ehs@uncw.edu.

 

Fire Safety Education and Training

Residence hall staff receive comprehensive fire and emergency training prior to the start of every fall semester. Topics include a review of fire prevention policies and disaster preparedness practices, followed by a hands-on fire extinguisher training, emergency evacuation exercise and educational opportunities.

Fire safety training programs are also provided to other student, staff and faculty groups on campus by request. Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) partners with the Wilmington Fire Department (WFD) during numerous educational programs in residence halls. EH&S staff are members of Life and Safety Education Resources (LASER), a local nonprofit dedicated to fire and life safety. These programs typically consist of a community-building event such as a cooking demonstration and a review of fire prevention and evacuation procedures, followed by hands-on fire extinguisher training. Bulletin board kits and PowerPoint presentations are provided to resident advisors as a tool to help educate their residents.

 

Fire Exit Drills

Fire exit drills are conducted four times each year cooperatively between EH&S and Housing & Residence Life. The purpose of these drills is to educate residents in fire exit procedures and familiarize them with the building exits and fire protection systems.

Logs of these fire exit drills, including the date, time and number of persons evacuated and other comments, are maintained by EH&S.

During fire drills, residents should:

  • When instructed, either by fire alarm or other alert notification method, calmly evacuate the building using the stairs, not elevators.
  • Evacuate to a safe place outside of the building, preferably 500 feet away, then attempt to locate their roommates and let responders know if they are unaccounted for.
  • Remain in this location until everyone is accounted for, and notify emergency responders if they believe someone may be trapped.
  • Those with mobility impairments should shelter in stairwells until help arrives if they are unable to navigate stairs.
  • Refrain from re-entering the building until emergency personnel determine it is safe and have instructed residents to return.

Participation in fire drills is mandatory; failure to evacuate the building during a fire alarm will result in disciplinary action.

Residents are encouraged to discuss fire evacuations procedures with their room/suitemates or resident advisor. Floor plans of residence halls are available here: https://uncw.edu/housing/communities/.

 

Fire Evacuation Guidelines

  • If the fire alarm is activated, stop all activities and immediately initiate evacuation.
  • Test your door; if it is hot, seal the door with a wet towel to help keep smoke out. Call 911 and provide emergency personnel with your exact location.
  • Stay low to the floor if smoke enters the room. If possible, signal the fire department from a window.
  • If it is safe to exit, be sure to close the door behind you when you do so.
  • Follow exit signs to the nearest stairwell. Do not use elevators.
  • Go to a designated meeting spot, a safe distance from the building. It is recommended that each building’s key personnel predetermine where to meet in case of an emergency.
  • Do not re-enter the building until authorized by UPD or the fire department to do so, even if the alarm has stopped.
  • In the event of injury or damage to property, please notify EH&S as soon as possible at 910.962.3057 or ehs@uncw.edu.

 

Tampering with Fire Systems

Firefighting, detection, suppression, and alarm equipment is provided for the protection of all residents. Misuse of, or tampering with, this equipment is a violation of university regulations and state criminal statutes. Below are references to the UNCW Code of Student Life and the Campus Living Handbook as well as other websites that apply to tampering with these systems. All cases of persons tampering with fire alarm systems are taken seriously and are routed through the campus conduct system. This may result in sanctions taken by the campus conduct board or criminal justice system, such as warnings, educational experiences, immediate termination of housing rental agreements, or referral to the state criminal justice system, where criminal fines and/or imprisonment could occur.

Additionally, it is a violation of North Carolina State Law to tamper with fire protection systems. Below is a link to North Carolina General Statute 14-286:

UNCW Fire Safety Policies and Rules

While educational programs and information are located both in EH&S and Housing & Residence Life, fire safety regulations inside the residence halls are located within the Housing and Residence Life website and several publications. Below are links to the various sites:

  

Smoking

The buildings on the University of North Carolina Wilmington campus are smoke-free; this applies to all academic, student support, and residential buildings. This means that smoking is not permitted in buildings at any time, including the use of electronic smoking devices (i.e., e-cigs, vaping devices). Further, there is a 25-foot no smoking zone at all residence hall entrances. Violators of the smoke-free guidelines will be held accountable for their actions via the student conduct system. Students found in violation of this policy will be fined at least $25 for their first instance and at least $50 for each subsequent violation. Smoking is allowed outside; however, cigarettes should be extinguished properly in receptacles and not near combustible landscaping materials.

Decorations

Decorating your room is a way to express your personality and individuality. There are, however, certain restrictions that apply that protect everyone:

  • Use of an extension cord is only allowed if one item is plugged into it. If extension cords are used, they must be UL-approved and be of an adequate wire gauge for the intended use.
  • Frayed or broken cords must not be used.
  • Electrical cords, such as light strings or extension cords, telephone, or data wires should not be routed through doorways or across walkways. This creates a trip hazard in the fire exit pathway.
  • Do not plug cords and lights into an overloaded circuit. Multi-plug adapters are prohibited in university buildings; instead, use power strips with a fuse or integral circuit breaker. These typically have a reset switch or button on them.
  • Candles, incense, oil lamps, tiki torches, etc., are not permitted in any on-campus residence or the areas surrounding the residence halls. Battery-powered candles are permitted.
  • Walls of any residence life area may not be covered by cardboard and no wall may have more than 50% of its surface covered including with paper, fabric, metal, etc. Ceilings must not be covered.
  • Halogen lamps are not allowed in the residence halls. Halogen lamps burn up to 10 times hotter than an ordinary light bulb, causing a potential fire hazard.
  • Cords or other decorations must not be hung from, attached to, or obscure fire and life safety systems such as smoke detectors, sprinklers, pull stations and exit signs.
  • Live Christmas trees are not permitted in student rooms.

  

Appliances

 Portable electric appliances are allowed in residence halls with the following exceptions:

  • Halogen lamps: the bulb temperature constitutes a fire hazard and a potential source of burns
  • Space heaters
  • Homemade extension cords or electrical appliances
  • Ceiling fans or track lighting that are not university installed
  • As a general rule, microwaves and single-cup coffee makers (e.g., Keurig) are the only cooking appliances allowed in student rooms.

The following items are allowed in kitchens only:

  • Countertop electric grills
  • Deep fryers
  • Electric skillets/griddles
  • Oil popcorn poppers
  • Toasters, toaster ovens or any other electrical appliance with open coils or flames

  

Other Fire Safety Rules

Storage of hazardous materials is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, gasoline, kerosene, lighter fluid, propane, oxygen, chemicals and gas grills.

  • Nothing may be stored in stairwells, either indoors or outdoors.
  • Grills, smokers, charcoal, lighter fluid, gas tanks, etc., cannot be stored in any residential area on university-owned property. Grills may be used at least 25 feet from all buildings and combustible materials. Use of the public grilling units provided is encouraged.

  

Planned Improvements

Environmental Health & Safety always seeks opportunities for improvement and has identified the following areas of improvement over the next 12-24 months:

  • An e-cig education campaign
  • The design and installation of a state-of-the-art fire alarm central reporting station that will provide greater reliability and redundancy in the system, particularly during outages
  • On-campus work groups targeting the reduction of nuisance fire alarms in collaboration with UPD, EH&S, HRL, and Facilities
  • Recordkeeping and analysis to identify common themes that may reduce the nuisance of fire alarms
  • Increased use of digital signage in the residence halls to educate students regarding fire prevention
  • Exploration of potential funding for engineering controls that may help reduce cooking-related nuisance fire alarms.

* University Apartments D and K do not have smoke detection in the bedroom areas, as these two buildings were renovated under a different fire code than the others. Smoke detectors are located within the common areas.

All University Apartment buildings were demolished in late 2018, following Hurricane Florence.

Note: All residential buildings have portable fire extinguishers located in the kitchen and common areas; these are inspected monthly by EH&S and maintained annually by a third-party vendor.


Fire Log

A log is maintained by EH&S and is updated continuously throughout the year. Faculty, staff, students and contractors should notify EH&S of any fire occurring on campus as soon as possible either by calling 910.962.3057 or emailing ehs@uncw.edu. This should not be considered the contact for a fire emergency, but for reporting after the emergency has ended. All emergencies should be reported by dialing 911. The fire logs for the three most recent calendar years are attached on the following pages for each on-campus housing facility. Note that not all nuisance fire alarms are included in this log -- only those which meet the definition of fire as cited in 34 CFR 668.49(d). Additionally, this log includes only residential facilities on campus.

During the 2018 reporting period, there were no reportable fires. There were numerous nuisance alarms that were typically caused by cooking. Secondary causes were mechanical or detector end-of-life-related.

About UNCW Environmental Health & Safety

In addition to fire safety, EH&S is responsible for a variety of safety and related programs throughout the UNCW community. Our charge includes workplace safety, fire safety, emergency management, laboratory safety, health and sanitation, sustainability and environmental and safety compliance.

Additionally, UNCW and the Wilmington Fire Department work very closely together in planning, response and education efforts. This relationship between UNCW and the WFD is especially strong with cooperative programs, two written memorandums of agreement (MOA) formally agreeing to commit our combined resources and efforts, and UNCW contributing its official logo for use on two of the engines that respond to campus. This allows us to be more efficient and effective in our efforts and to reach larger audiences. Through such an exemplary relationship between our agencies, UNCW students, faculty, and staff are afforded a greater degree of protection.

We are granted authority by the chancellor as outlined in the following policy: https://uncw.edu/policies/documents/05_600_EHandSPolicy_5Feb2010.pdf

Our highly educated, well-trained and experienced staff of 11 full-time employees helps to make UNCW a safe place to live and work.

Our mission is to lead the university to a safe, healthy, sustainable and disaster-resilient culture by providing educational, technical and operational services to support the UNCW community.

EH&S hopes that you have found this report informative. If you have questions, or if we may assist you in any way, please contact us.
