Our Role at Lehigh

The role of the Life Safety Department is to enhance the quality of life at the University by providing a safe and secure environment that is conducive to learning.

Life Safety refers to the unit responsible for ensuring that the life safety systems alert occupants to the present of a fire or other emergencies within a building.

Life Safety reviews and approves drawings and technical documents for the construction of new buildings as well as the review and approval of similar documents for alteration/renovation, of any size, in existing buildings.  In addition, Life Safety oversees related system inspections ensuring code compliance and system integrity, performs building fire-safety inspections, and surveys university facilities to ensure systems conform to the Lehigh missions.

The Life Safety group monitors and maintains the following equipment on campus:

  • Fire Extinguishers
  • Kitchen Suppression Systems
  • Sprinkler Systems
  • Fire Pumps
  • Fire Alarm Systems
  • Campus-wide Alarm Monitoring System
