Annual Fire Safety Report & Logs

The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 is a federal law that requires colleges and Universities to disclose fire safety-related information for on-campus student housing facilities including an annual fire safety report and access to a log of fires reported in on-campus student housing facilities.  The Cornell University Annual Fire Safety Report provides fire safety information for each Ithaca campus on-campus student housing facility, including fire safety equipment, fire safety policies, and statistics concerning reported fires.  The report also includes information about fire safety education and procedures related to reporting fires and evacuation.  You may download a copy of the report using the link below.
