Dorm inspections seek to raise students’ fire and safety awareness

University of Connecticut dormitories will undergo their semesterly fire and safety inspections this March, a practice conducted by room administrators and supplemented by the Fire Marshal and Building Inspector’s Office, UConn Fire Department Deputy Chief Christopher Renshaw said.

“Most of our successes are on the preventive side,” Patrick Eye, a UConn firefighter of four years, said. “It’s a great job that those guys do in filtering down the (fire safety) information to the RA’s to get it out to the students.”
