All of the buildings on the campus of Colorado Christian University are equipped with either smoke detectors, alarm systems or both. West Campus, located at the 9500 block of W. Alameda frontage road, is comprised of four apartment buildings leased by the University. Below is a listing of each housing facility and the type of fire systems equipped in each building.
The fire systems on campus are serviced each year by the University fire vendor and inspected annually by the West Metro Fire Department. Fire Drills are held at the beginning of the fall semester and instructions for evacuating the residence halls are on the back door each resident's apartment. Students are not allowed to overload wall sockets and only approved extension cords are allowed. The use of grills, hibachi's or any other open flames devices within 10 feet of Residence Halls is prohibited. Students are reminded not leave electrical equipment unattended and only use those appliances with heating coils, hot plates, and frying utensils and other cooking appliances in the kitchen area. Upon discovery of a fire residents are required to activate the fire alarm (if available) nearest to their point of exit, call 911 and the notify Security. Security will then make proper notifications and the Emergency Alert System will be activated. Residence Hall Staff members undergo training at the beginning of the fall semester regarding use of fire extinguishers, basic fire safety, and evacuation procedures.
