Fire Log

on-campus banner

In an effort to standardize the information an institution publishes on fire safety, the U.S. Department of Education requires all universities that maintain on-campus student housing facilities and receive U.S. Department of Education funding to publish an annual fire safety report, maintain a fire log, and report fire statistics to the Secretary of Education. The Annual Security and Fire Safety Report is also posted on the Montana State University Residence Life website. Paper copies of the full report are available upon request at the Residence Life Office during business hours.
