Fire Prevention / Policies for Student Housing

Definition

“Fire” is defined as any instance of open flame or other burning in a place not intended to contain the burning or in an uncontrolled manner.

“Fire Log” is a log that records, by the date reported, any fire that occurs in an on-campus student housing facility. The fire log will include date reported, nature of fire, date and time of fire and general location of fire. The Fire log may include record of fires that occur elsewhere for internal record keeping. The fire log is kept and maintained by the flagship security department. The Fire Log most recent 60 day period is open to anyone in the public upon request.

“Reported fires” are fires that were already extinguished as well as those discovered while still burning. They include emergency situations involving fires that necessitated a call to the fire department for assistance, as well as minor fires, such as a small trash can fire that was easily extinguished without assistance.

“Fire Safety Report” is a report published annually by October 1st. The report includes on-campus student housing facility fire safety system, number of fire drills during calendar year, rules on portable electrical appliances, smoking and open flames in a student housing facility, Procedures for student housing evacuation in the case of a fire, Policies regarding fire safety education and training programs provided to the students and employees, who should fires be reported to and fire statistics.

Procedure

Any and all fires would require a written report by security and housing. A record of the report would be maintained by the security department and a copy sent to the Dean of Students.

No open flame or heating device is permitted in the students housing. Residents are not permitted to possess candles or incense in any facility on campus. Smoking is not permitted in several areas on campus, including all on-campus housing. Smoking areas are designated with smoking signs. Smoking is prohibited in all residence hallways. All University Housing is Smoke Free. Smoking is only permitted at least 25 feet from residential buildings.

Fire Drills will occur each semester. These drills will be unpublicized, and must be treated as if they were real fires. Each resident will evacuate the building whenever a fire alarm sounds for security and safety reasons.

Fire Safety and Fire Drills

The student housing has a fire alarm and fire alarm pull stations. Fire extinguishers are placed throughout the student housing.

All student housing room external windows are designed as emergency exit windows. In addition the attic has fire rated walls to delay the spread of fire.

In the Event of a Fire, if you smell smoke or detect a fire, activate the nearest alarm to you and immediately notify CRT members or campus security. Before opening any door, use the back of your hand to check to see if it is hot. If hot, leave the door closed and stuff wet towels or clothes in the cracks and open a window. If the door is not hot, open it slowly. Exit the building cautiously.

Fire Alarms

Fire alarms are located in each residence hall to alert occupants in case of a fire. Residents must comply with all fire alarms/drills and immediately evacuate when an alarm sounds or instructed to do so by appropriate campus personnel.   Failure to evacuate will result in disciplinary action.

Activating a false alarm, tampering with the alarm or tampering with smoke detectors is strictly prohibited and will result in severe disciplinary actions. At the sound of a fire alarm, a student should immediately follow the procedures below:

  • Close all windows and leave overhead light ON.
  • Before opening any door, feel the door.
  • If it is hot do not open it. Open the window and exit through the window if possible. If exit not possible, place wet towels or clothes under doorways, and call Campus Security to notify them that you are trapped.
  • Stay close to the floor if smoke enters the room.
  • If it is not hot, open the door slowly, and exit the building using extreme caution. When exiting the room and building close all doors to help prevent the spread of smoke and fire
  • If you have exited the building, stand clear of the building and go to the area assigned to students when a fire alarm/drill occurs (staying as far away from the building as possible).
  • No resident should return to the building until the “All-Clear” is given.

Missing Persons Procedure

Purpose

As part of our commitment to the safety and security of our students, and to maintain compliance with the Clery Act, Keiser University Residential Campus has established the following missing student procedure. This procedure is intended to establish formal notification procedures for students who live in on-campus housing and who have been reported missing.

General

Any member of the Keiser University Latin America campus community who believes that a student who lives in on-campus housing is missing should immediately report her \ his concern to a CRT member or contact security.

Students who reside on campus are encouraged to provide contact information for one or more individuals to be contacted strictly for missing person purposes. Students should provide information to the Director of Residential Life. Information provided will be registered confidentially and only accessible to authorized campus personnel. Contact information may not be disclosed, except to law enforcement personnel in furtherance of a missing person investigation.

If a students is under 18 years of age the institution must notify a custodial parent or guardian within 24 hours of the determination that the student is missing, in addition to notifying any additional contact person designated by the student.

Procedure

All concerns about an on-campus student residing in student housing that may be missing should immediately be reported to the Campus President, Campus Vice President and/or Dean of Students. A report of a missing person can be made at any time a person is believed to be missing. Upon receipt of this information, the campus will notify the Office of the Chancellor.

Federal law mandates that the University provide students with an option of specifying person(s) with whom contact should be made in the event he or she has been determined by the police to be a missing person.

Upon notification that a student is possibly missing, the campus will initiate the following actions:

If the student has designated a contact person(s) , notifying that contact person(s) within 24 hours that the student is missing

The campus will gather information about the residential student from the reporting person and from any of the student’s acquaintances

  1. Description
    b. Clothes last worn
    c. Where student might be
    d. Who student might be with
    e. Vehicle description
    f. Information about the physical and mental well-being of the student
    g. Up-to-date photograph
    h. Class schedule

Appropriate campus staff will be notified to aid in the search for the student.

If the above actions are unsuccessful in locating the student within 24 hours of the report, or it is immediately apparent that the student is a missing person (e.g., witnessed abduction) the campus will contact the local Law Enforcement to report the student as a missing person.

No later than 24 hours after determining that a residential student is missing, the Campus President or his designee will notify the emergency contact (for students 18 and over) or the parent/guardian (for students under the age of 18) that the student is believed to be missing.

This policy applies ONLY to on-campus residential students, however, at any time a person feels that any student is missing or in danger, this information should be immediately reported to the Campus President, Campus Vice President, Vice President- Academic Affairs, Dean of Students, Resident Assistant or a CRT member.

* This procedure does not preclude any person from contacting security/authorities at any time that they perceive an emergency or imminent threat.

Mrs. Percy and Mr. Williams believed in me. They were more than instructors, they tried to get to know you as a person and tried to understand your goals so they could push you towards them. And Mrs. Crawford from student services helped me find a job before I even graduated. She was dedicated to my overall success.

Jessica Kircher

Going to Keiser University was one of the greatest experiences in my life. All of my deans, professors, and staff made me feel that I was a part of something very special, and I am. I would recommend for anyone to get their education at Keiser University.

Belinda Haney

The two instructors that have impacted my life are Mr. Williams and Mrs. Percy. Both of them believed in my ability to become a great graphic designer, regardless of how I felt about my skills. I appreciate their motivation to get me to where I am today.

Justin Pugh

Beyond the curriculum of the courses, the lessons the instructors have taught me have paid dividends in my real work experiences. How to respond to criticisms, project and time management, interview skills, the list goes on and on. At the end of the day, they not only showed me how to design, but they taught me how to be a professional.

Ryan Bushey

If not for my education at Keiser I probably would not be where I am today, in both life and career. It is because of going to Keiser and the instructors I had that I joined a club started by Mr. Williams, The Lakeland Shooters Photography Group, which allowed me to venture into an amazing and very creative field that I use to enhance all aspects of my life.

Anthony Sassano

The Design program at Keiser University was filled with real world learning and hands on instruction… Based on the portfolio I created while a student at Keiser University, I landed a job in Graphic Design for a major online retailer immediately after graduation.

Ty Fitzgerald

The year and a half I spent in the program better prepared me for attaining a job in the field…As a hands-on learner, the project-centered teaching was perfect for me.

Jackson Tejada

Keiser University has given me the opportunity to embrace a career change… It has opened the door for a timely graduation and quick return to the work force…

Dale Caverly

Without the education I received at Keiser University, I would not be where I am today!

Meisha Ebanks, R.N.

I not only received an excellent education but also encouragement and training that built my self-confidence every day.

Nidia Barrios

I realize the amount of knowledge I gained and feel that the educational experiences have developed me in to a person who can move higher up the career ladder.

Carlos Ramirez Flores

Keiser University’s MBA program has renewed my mind, changed the way I think, and given me a new sense of purpose.  The professors transformed my attitude and behavior, gave me the self-confidence I was lacking, and restored my energy.

Connie Sue Centrella

It has been great attending and graduating from Keiser University.  Because of the small class sizes, I was able to build good relationships with classmates and professors.  The PA professors care very much about the progress and success of the students and have been great advisors every step of the way through the program.

Annelise Merriner, PA-C

Attending Keiser University and getting my degree was the best decision I have ever made.  The small class sizes and personalized attention helped me get my degree quickly.  The hands-on experience and the education landed me a job at a neighboring law firm.

Dedrick Saxon

I chose Keiser because it had everything—small classes, caring professors, hands-on learning, and counselors that are really there for you.  I feel like I’m part of a family here, not just a number.

Natalie Dou

After being denied for several promotions at my current employer, I decided that I needed to further my education.  Since graduating from Keiser with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, I have been promoted and I am able to obtain positions that weren’t available to me before.

Laurie Williams

Keiser helped change my life by getting my education at the right school! I had been going to another school before, I dropped out because I felt that I was not getting enough information. When I found out about Keiser, I was pleased because the instructors were great.

Nadege Dor

My decision to attend Keiser University has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I chose to enroll in the Information Technology program… The one-class-a-month pace helped incredibly with my self-discipline.

Marla Hadley

The BA for Business Administration at Keiser has to be one of the best in the nation. Keiser takes the basics that are taught at the Associates level and uses them to strengthen your skills and knowledge.

Vivian R. Howard, BA in Business Administration Graduate

I found that Keiser University’s Nuclear Medicine program of advanced studies and small class size was a perfect fit. I never came across a faculty member who wasn’t truly interested.
