Carleton University has a campus wide Fire Safety Plan approved by the City of Ottawa, which validates that we have the appropriate measures in place for the safety of our staff and students in the event of a fire or other emergency requiring an evacuation.  The Department of University Safety and the Building Authorities collaborated by providing input into the Fire Safety Plan.

To supplement this overall Fire Safety Plan, each building in turn has its own unique fire safety plan, to ensure the appropriate measures are in place, based on the building purpose (research, teaching, administrative, residential, facilities), occupant load and specific hazards which might require specific attention.
