Maintaining Life Safety Systems

Systems Maintenance


Potential impairments or questions as to status of systems should be referred to this office immediately for remedy and assurance of the required level of protection. After-hours reports should be made directly to the UConn Fire Department at 860-486-3135.

Maintenance of the building environment and access to all Life Safety Systems is the responsibility of the building occupants. Common, but critical, mistakes such as painting any part of a sprinkler head must not be done as it requires the replacement of the head and may inhibit operation of the sprinklers. Operational maintenance of the Life Safety Systems is coordinated through this office and may be done by contractors and/or UConn employees.
