In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act (P.L. 110-315) of 2008, Environmental Health & Safety maintains statistics concerning the number of fires and the cause of each fire; the number of injuries related to a fire that result in treatment at a medical facility; the number of deaths related to a fire; and the value of property damage caused by a fire; a description of each on-campus student housing facility fire safety system, including the fire sprinkler system; the number of regular mandatory supervised fire drills; policies or rules on portable electrical appliances, smoking, and open flames (such as candles), procedures for evacuation, and policies regarding fire safety education and training programs provided to students, faculty, and staff; and plans for future improvements in fire safety, if determined necessary.
The reports for the Blacksburg Campus, Alexandria Campus, and the Switzerland Campus, will be published annually. The fire log for the Blacksburg campus is maintained by the Virginia Tech Police Department, which also issues the annual Clery Report.
