Kerry Rose Fire Sprinkler Notification Act
Old Westbury has long been committed to maintaining a comprehensive fire safety program for all members of the Old Westbury community. At Old Westbury the Woodlands residence halls have a sprinkler/standpipe system which includes 100% of resident rooms. All residence halls have a smoke detection system with automatic alerting to the fire department and University Police. Residence halls with burning gas also have Carbon monoxide detection, in full compliance with Amanda’s Law. The college prohibits dangerous items from residence’s rooms such as candles, high wattage appliances, and extension cords; a full list is available within the guide to campus living on our website. Residence halls are all equipped with fire extinguishers and emergency lights.
Old Westbury is concerned about the safety of every individual on campus and therefore has very strict fire safety regulations. Students who do not observe these regulations jeopardize the safety of others on this campus and therefore will be subject to disciplinary action. Fire and life safety programs must receive community-wide support in order to be effective. Cooperation from all students any time a fire alarm sounds is expected.
Students who misuse, tamper, or otherwise disturb fire safety equipment, including smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, pull stations, and fire doors are subject to disciplinary action which may include the cost of restoring the equipment. These students will be referred to the Student Conduct Process.
