Students are encouraged to use these extinguishers when warranted for fire safety. If you are uncertain how to properly use the extinguisher contact your Head Resident. If you suspect there is a problem with your extinguisher, contact your Head Resident or Campus Security immediately. If you have cause to discharge your extinguisher for fire control you must immediately advise your Head Resident and the Campus Security Department to report the fire and use of the extinguisher. If a room extinguisher is discharged for other than a fire or a non-reported fire, or tampered with in any way to cause the extinguisher to be inoperable or unavailable for emergency use, the occupant(s) of the room will be charged for the cost of replacement and/or recharging.

The misuse or abuse of any life safety equipment in any campus building or facility is a serious violation of University policy.
