Fire Safety

Adelphi has a comprehensive fire safety program.

Adelphi University has long been committed to maintaining a comprehensive fire safety program for all members of the Adelphi community with the assistance of our students, faculty and staff, and through the cooperative efforts of the Garden City Fire Department, Nassau County Fire Marshal’s Office, and the New York State Office of Fire Prevention. Our fire safety program has contributed to what we believe is an excellent record of safety.

Fire and life safety programs must receive community-wide support in order to be effective. Cooperation from all students at fire drills, announced and unannounced, is expected. Students who do not vacate in a timely manner are subject to disciplinary action. There are a minimum of four fire drills conducted in each of the residence halls each year. Two drills are conducted in the evening, and two are conducted during the day.
