Resident Adviser Safety Training

All RAs attend required fire safety training in August before students move into residence halls. The training is provided by the University Fire Marshal and Fire Safety staff and includes a classroom portion with a PowerPoint presentation, introduction to University fire safety policies, and an evacuation video. The second portion of the class is a hands-on fire extinguisher training in which each RA is required to use a fire extinguisher to put out a controlled training fire. The classes provide RAs with specific instructions on fire prevention and evacuation and reporting procedures. Housing also provides separate training during the same week, which includes a review of all residence hall policies and procedures regarding fire safety.

Student Fire Safety Training

The development of a culture of fire safety at UNC-Chapel Hill is critical to a safe environment. Education is one of the most important aspects of developing that culture, and extensive training and education is an annual part of our fire safety program. The following is a partial list of the Fire Safety Section’s education and training efforts over the past three calendar years:

  • Participated in the annual Fall Festival celebration—helping to provide a safe environment, answering fire safety questions, and ensuring compliance with the NC State Fire Code.
  • Held annual fire safety fair in collaboration with UNC Public Safety, Chapel Hill Fire Department, Carolina Dining Services and Orange County Emergency Services to develop on-going fire safety relationships with students and to provide hands-on training.
  • Facilitated quarterly training sessions for the EHS Emergency Response Team, collaborating their knowledge and reviewing incidents to improve effectiveness of hazardous materials incident response.
  • Trained EHS fire safety personnel responsible for inspecting laboratories, providing new tools for identifying and correcting fire safety deficiencies.
  • Trained students, faculty and staff in fire extinguisher use, with live fire, PowerPoint and student developed videos.
  • Trained 300 Resident Advisers yearly for the Department of Housing and Residential Education.
  • Participated in two Fire Safety fairs annually (10/3/2018 and 10/22/2018) in collaboration with the Department of Residential Education, Orange County EMS, UNC Police, Chapel Hill Fire Department, NC Forestry and other stakeholders to reach students with fire safety messages.
  • Partnered with Town of Chapel Hill and Community partners and the Office of Student Fraternities and Sororities to ensure town and student success through knowledge of available programs.
  • Partnered with the Chapel Hill Fire Department to provide yearly training opportunities in University housing facilities.
  • Implemented a new building and fire safety inspection procedure that will ensure annual inspections of all student housing.

Note 1. CO Detection is only provided in units with gas cooking ranges. Buildings that do not have gas cooking ranges are listed as “N/A” under the CO Detection column.

Note 2. Evacuation drills for Granville Towers are conducted by the management company, not the University.

Note 3: Odum Village is no longer student housing as of August 2016. Because of this change, only two fire drills were required during the 2016 calendar year.

In October and November 2019, Granville Towers residents were temporarily relocated to several area hotels for periods of approximately 48 hours while mold was remediated in their residences. Those hotels are listed in the table below, which details the various fire safety measures in place at each location. All of the locations have automatic fire alarms with smoke detection and automatic sprinkler systems. They also have portable fire extinguishers and evacuation maps throughout the hotels. Given the short term nature of this relocation no fire drills were held at these facilities. Each establishment is subject to the fire safety regulations set forth by the towns in which they are located. Staff from UNC’s Department of Housing and Residential Education are on site when students are being housed there. Further, the UNC Police Department has assumed responsibility for all non-emergency calls for service to these locations when students are residing there. Emergency calls are still being routed to the department with primary jurisdiction over that location.
