Fire and Life Safety is now a part of the Department of Public Safety, responsible for maintaining a safe and healthy environment for the campus community by performing fire safety inspections and audits of student housing facilities, common areas, south campus apartments, academic and administrative buildings, and mechanical spaces in residence halls. Fire and Life Safety also responds to fire alarms on the Syracuse University campus in partnership with the City of Syracuse Fire Department (SFD) which is an Insurance Services Office (ISO) class 1 fire department.
