Campus Fire Safety

The Office of Environmental Health and Safety is responsible for maintaining and enforcing standards of quality and safety throughout the Fairfield University campus. Staffed by a Connecticut state certified Fire Marshall, the Environmental Health and Safety office provides professional advice to campus departments on all aspects of health and life safety.

The goal of the Office of Environmental Health and Safety is to maintain and constantly strive to improve the safety and well-being of the students, faculty/staff, and visitors to Fairfield University's campus.

The campus Fire Marshal is the authority having jurisdiction on fire-safety and life-safety issues for the Fairfield University campus. The duties of the Fire Marshall include conducting routine inspections of campus buildings and addressing both fire and life safety concerns and questions.

The fire marshal is in direct communication with the town of Fairfield Fire Marshall on a consistent basis in reviewing documents for new construction, remodeling/renovations and keeping the local fire department up to speed with changes going on at campus.

If you have an environmental, health or safety concern, or if you want or need information or training in a particular area, please contact Joseph M. Bouchard.
