The Life Safety Systems team provides programmatic oversight and technical guidance to the Maintenance Regions in the maintenance and repair of fire alarm and fire suppression systems across campus.   The Life Safety team also serves the critical role of ensuring that all life safety systems work is performed according to legal and regulatory requirements.   They track Maintenance Regions work on a wide variety of assets including backup generators, eyewash stations, fire pumps, fire alarm systems, emergency lighting, backflow preventers, and fire extinguishers.  The team also works closely with the Office of Fire Safety and other colleagues in Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) on fire inspections and other safety programs, keeping up to date on changes in life safety codes.   Lastly, they support life safety system design review in new campus construction and major renovations.
