  3. Fire Safety Policies

    The following information is displayed on the INLOCC web site under the “Fire” heading of Fire Statics and is aimed specifically at dormitory housing.

    In order to minimize the potential for fires at university student housing facilities, the following items are prohibited:

    • Portable space heaters
    • Barbeque grills, hibachis, smokers and related accessories including lighter fluids and similar type products.
    • Any open flame device or object including candles, incense sticks and related accessories.
    • Hot plates, slow cookers, deep fryers, electric skillets, electric woks, griddles, sandwich makers/grills, toaster ovens and related accessories.
    • Flammable or combustible liquids.
    • Fireworks, firecrackers, rockets, flares, sparklers.
    • Halogen lamps.
    • Combustible ceiling/wall tapestries.
    • Live Christmas trees or non fire retardant artificial Christmas trees.

    Special events, inside or out, must receive an Amusement & Entertainment Permit from Indiana State Fire Marshall’s Office before approval to hold the event is granted by the university. This procedure is posted on the INLOCC web site.

    Inspections are made of student housing to insure fire safe practices are followed.

    Students who live in full apartments owned by Indiana University are provided with a handbook that outlines the fire safety requirements for those units. These handbooks are reviewed and updated annually. Some fire safety requirements include, but are not limited to:

    • Avoid the use of extension cords
    • No open flames such as candles
    • No storage of flammable materials
    • No smoking allowed anywhere in the apartment building
    • Never prop open fire rated doors
  4. Procedures for Student Evacuation

    Indiana University policy includes posting of EMERGENCY EVACUATION signage in prominent locations in all buildings. On these signs are instructions for evacuation procedures from a student’s individual room. Call 911, get dressed, take room key, feel door, check for smoke, alert others while exiting, be accounted for in your predetermined “safe location”, are all included in evacuation signage, along with a “You Are Here” drawing of the building.

  5. Fire Safety Training for Students, Faculty and Staff

    Training on evacuation procedures is provided at student orientation and reinforced throughout the year by Resident Assistants. The Office of Insurance, Loss Control and Claims also provides training in large group situations covering the operation of portable fire extinguishers, alarms systems and sprinkler systems and emergency evacuations.

  6. To Whom Should A Fire Be Reported?

    In the event of an emergency, housing occupants should call local responders via 911, and activate the evacuation alarm, then exit the building. After the emergency has been abated, persons that must be notified of the event are:

    • University Housing Manager.
    • Office of Insurance, Loss Control and Claims, (812) 855-9758
