Fire Safety


Fire Drills

For the protection and safety of our community, announced and unannounced fire drills will be held at the direction of the OSU Fire Marshal during the academic year. To become familiar with evacuation routes, cooperation is mandatory. Anytime the alarm sounds, residents are to leave the building. Participation in fire evacuations is required by state law.
