Notification of Fire Safety Standards for SUNY Canton Residence Halls

ยง6438 of New York State Education Law requires notification of fire safety standards and measures in all college-owned or college operated housing. To facilitate compliance the following information is provided:

An Emergency Evacuation & Safety Plan has been developed for Mohawk Hall, Heritage Hall, Rushton Hall, Smith Hall and Kennedy Hall. These plans can be viewed and are available through the Residence Life Office.

Mohawk Hall, Heritage Hall, Rushton Hall and Smith Hall are equipped with sprinkler systems in trash and storage rooms. The East wings of Heritage Hall, Mohawk Hall and Rushton Hall are fully sprinklered.

Kennedy Hall is a fully sprinklered building.

All five residence halls are equipped with a fully addressable automatic fire alarm system designed to detect the unwanted presence of fire by monitoring the presence of smoke and/or heat. In general, smoke and/or heat detectors are located in each space of the building. The fire alarm system can also be manually actuated by pulling a fire alarm pull station. Fire alarm pull stations are located throughout the building at or near an exit. The location of fire alarm pull stations are identified in the Emergency Evacuation & Safety Plan as well as on posted Building Evacuation Plans.

All five residence halls are equipped with portable fire extinguishers. Portable fire extinguishers are intended to extinguish or control small fires. In general, portable fire extinguishers are located on each floor of the building and other required spaces. The location of portable fire extinguishers are identified in the Emergency Evacuation & Safety Plan as well as on posted Building Evacuation Plans.

All five residence halls are equipped with emergency exits and stairwells. The location of emergency exits and stairwells are identified in the Emergency Evacuation & Safety Plan as well as on posted Building Evacuation Plans.
