Fire Protection Reliability

The members of FES have an extensive professional and academic background in fire protection, fire prevention, safety, code management, fire investigation, building inspections, fire suppression, hazardous materials and training. FES strives to ensure a safe operational and living environment for all Penn students, faculty and staff by providing a contemporary fire and safety program that is continuously reviewed, updated and coordinated with University community members.

Personnel from FES, along with various representatives from both Penn (Undergraduate Assembly, Office of Off-Campus Living) and the City of Philadelphia (Licenses & Inspections, Fire Department), as well as landlords in University City, have joined together to create the Off-Campus Fire Safety Coalition. The overarching goal of this coalition is to identify current code compliance issues (recently updated by the City of Philadelphia) and increase the number of inspections in off-campus student residences within University City, with the support of University City landlords.
