To Prevent Fires
» SMOKE ONLY IN DESIGNATED AREAS
Smoking is prohibited from any entrance to the building or in any building on the campus. The Smoking Policy states that smoking must be at least 50 feet from any state building. If you do smoke on campus please use one of the designated areas.
IT IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY TO INFORM VIOLATORS OF THE SMOKING POLICY.
Cooking should only be conducted in approved designated areas on the campus. PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE.
Use only laboratory tested appliances and don't overload outlets.
» HELP ELIMINATE ELECTRICAL ABUSE
Use of electrical "octopuses" to obtain more outlets can result in overloaded circuits and fires. Replace damaged wires and make sure that whatever you plug into an electrical outlet match the circuit requirements to the circuit power. Before you plug in more than one appliance in an outlet you should contact physical plant to be sure you don't overload the circuit.
Hot plate, percolators, irons space heaters, etc. should never be used except in approved areas. If used in an approved area they should never be left unattended. The use of extension cords should not be used unless approved by physical plant.
» OPEN FLAMES
Open flames such as candles are not allowed anywhere on campus.
» HAZARDOUS STORAGE/FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS
Hazardous materials or gasoline (any flammable liquid) should never be stored in a building unless in a proper storage cabinet and approved containers. Surplus or hazardous materials should be transported and stored in the Chemical Storage area for proper disposal
Storage of bicycles, desk chairs, or any items are prohibited in corridors, hallways, stairways, and all exit ways. Blocked exits have caused "chain reaction" pile ups of fallen people trying to exit an area during an emergency.
