About Fire Safety
Whether your role is faculty member, staff, student, or visitor to Tufts University, each person has a personal vision and mission they are seeking to achieve. Additionally, each person is likely to have many other people in their lives – who are impacted by that vision and mission in some manner. Fires and other threats can suddenly cause injuries (or worse), property loss, and other forms of major setback to your personal mission.
The Fire Safety Office contributes to the goal of "safeguarding your mission" in support of the Tufts community, the university mission and YOUR goals as well. The Fire Safety Office duties include fire and building code enforcement and related support services, investigation of fires and related hazards, and the supervision of fire and life safety systems for all of the university’s academic, administrative and residential buildings on all campuses.
The Fire Safety Office staff presents fire safety awareness and educational programs, and conducts semi-annual fire drills in residential buildings. The Fire Safety Office delivers its mission primarily via the 3 E’s of fire safety: Education, Engineering, and Enforcement of fire safety related services and policies.
