Fire Equipment

Extinguishers
Extinguishers are bar-coded and tracked through a maintenance/inspection and testing database program and are inspected regularly. There are several types of extinguishing equipment located on campus, these include: A-B-C, A-B, CO2, H2O and K-class (kitchens). If you notice a missing extinguisher or an extinguisher with a missing tag or pin or showing any sign of damage or discharge, notify EH&S immediately at (248) 370-4196 or via e-mail.

Smoke Detectors
Smoke detectors are hard wired and report directly to the Campus Fire Alarm Reporting System (CFAR) at the OUPD Dispatch. Smoke detectors should not be removed, covered, obstructed or tampered with in any way. Report any signs of damaged or defective smoke detectors immediately by contacting EH&S at (248) 370-4196 or via e-mail.  

Sprinklers
Sprinklers are heat activated and distribute water to cool and extinguish a fire. The majority of sprinkler heads in use on campus are designed to activate at temperatures of 135-155 F but can be damaged and possibly discharge if they are struck due to horseplay or careless work practices. Do not hang objects from, cover, strike or obstruct a sprinkler head.

Report any leaking sprinkler system equipment:

  • Business Hours (M-F 8 a.m.-5 p.m.): Work Control Center at (248) 370-2381
  • After Hours: OUPD Dispatch at (248) 370-3331
