We place the needs of the community as our highest priority and value the opportunities to serve.

Campus Fire Safety is important. Each year college and university students experience fire-related emergencies. Princeton University’s Fire Marshal Office provides a number of services and educational opportunities for the Campus Community.

Fire Safety Education is an effective method of reducing the occurrence of fires, loss of life and destruction of property. The Office of the Fire Marshal provides events and activities for Residential Colleges, University Laboratories as well as Administrative and Academic Departments. All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend and participate in fire safety programs and activities throughout the academic year.
