Fire Safety at Virginia Commonwealth University inspects and tests fire protection systems including:

  • Fire extinguishers (except in dormitories)
  • Halon
  • Sprinkler systems
  • Fire alarms
  • Smoke detectors
  • Fire shutters
  • Standpipes
  • Check valves
  • Fire department connections
  • Fire pumps

We also provide on-scene coordination between the Physical Plant Control Center and the Richmond Bureau of Fire. Following an emergency, we ensure fire protection and alarm equipment returns to proper working order.
