Our Fire Safety team keeps the Columbia community safe by carrying out regular fire inspections within our facilities; providing fire safety oversight at events; conducting hot work site inspections; and by conducting intensive fire safety training and drills throughout the year in addition to skilled and thorough investigations when fires actually occur. These efforts combined with our close partnership with the FDNY ensure that if a fire does occur, we have the skills and knowledge to put it out quickly and protect the lives of our students, faculty and staff, as well as our neighbors.
In case of a fire, storm or other dangerous event on campus, don't forget to check the Columbia Preparedness website. It's the University's central source for emergency information.
