Know the difference between fire and other alarms
The Campus has many types of alarms to be aware of: smoke detection making a constant sound; CO or carbon monoxide, which make noise in intermittent 3-sound cycles; and the campus-alert steam whistle that indicates checking E2 alert system. It is important to be aware of the differences so you can respond accordingly in any situation for your maximum safety. For questions, call the fire safety office at 716-375-4018.
Knowing your living area
Get to know your living area. Nothing is more important than pre-planning before emergencies happen. You should know:
1. How many routes and methods of escape you have from your living area.
2. What and where all the safety devices are located, what they are used for, and by whom the may are used.
Reporting/Deterring Tampering Crimes
It’s important to note that all campus community members have a responsibility to thwart off and report anyone seen tampering with or rendering any life-safety device inoperative. Tampering with a life-safety device is a crime and places the safety of others in jeopardy. Tampering with life safety devices is a crime and punishable by fine and/or imprisonment.
