Fire Protection Engineering

The Fire Safety Team is an integral part of the Campus Capital Projects Program.  We provide services and resources for design development through consultation and plan review.  This process allows us to continue to construct and equip our campus facilities with fire and life safety protection systems in order to minimize the loss of life, property, and the interruption of daily activities. 

Faculty, staff, contractors, subcontractors, prospective design professionals, engineers and architects must be aware of our required fire prevention practices and services. 

Staff is available to work with users and design teams early in the programming or project development phases in order to guide fire and life safety designs as well as to ensure compliance with the minimum California State Standards and campus practices.
