Sprinkler Systems

All sprinklers are inspected and maintained as per NYC Fire Code and NFPA 25. For information on the latest inspections, please contact the Fire Safety Office at firesafety@columbia.edu.

Fire Drills

New York City and State Fire Codes require that 3 fire drills be conducted each year. All fire drills and fire alarms require that all occupants must evacuate from the building.

Fire Alarm Maintenance

At times maintenance and testing must be performed on the fire alarm system, advance notification will be given prior to such testing. This is the only time when evacuation is not required.
