    Fire Safety

    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.
