Fire safety is of paramount importance to the University. All residence halls are equipped with fire safety systems. Fire alarm systems are monitored on a 24-hour basis. A fire log for residence hall facilities is maintained in the Safety and Security Administrative Office, located in building 14.
At Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, fire safety is of paramount importance. The Life Safety Systems section of the Safety & Security Department manages the campus fire safety program.
Fire alarm systems report to the Safety & Security Communications Center and are monitored on a 24-hour basis. Any fire, smoke, or suspicious odor condition should be immediately reported to Safety & Security by calling 928-777-3333 or 928-777-3776 for emergencies.
Never hesitate to report these conditions, even if you are not sure if there is a fire. If a fire condition exists but was extinguished, Safety & Security must still be called. If 911 is called directly, make a follow-up call to Campus Safety & Security so they may meet and facilitate the fire department response.
A fire log for residence hall facilities is maintained in the Safety & Security Administrative Office located in Building 14. The log may be viewed anytime during business hours, Monday through Friday. The log records information concerning fires occurring inside a campus residence hall.
Residence halls are all equipped with fire safety systems. Please refer to the PDFs linked in the section below for information on each residence hall facility.
Fire drills are scheduled in residence hall facilities once per semester. All residents and guests are required to evacuate the building when an alarm is activated. During a fire alarm, evacuate the building by using stairs and moving away from the building a distance equal to the approximate height of the building. Do not block parking or service road and entrance areas, as these may be needed by emergency responders. Drills will be evaluated for their effectiveness by Campus Safety & Security and Residence Hall staff. Housing & Residence Life Resident Advisors receive fire safety training from the Fire Life Safety Officer, and annual fire extinguisher training is requested from the local fire department.
Each resident receives a copy of the Department of Housing & Residence Life Information and Policy Guide. The guide contains information concerning evacuation procedures, fire safety and prohibited items, and fire equipment.
Smoking and any type of open flame are not permitted within Residence Halls. This includes candles, incense, or any type of flame cooking devices. Cooking appliances (hot plates, toaster ovens), space heaters, or halogen lamps are prohibited.
Fire protection systems are tested annually, under the supervision of the Fire Life Safety Officer. Improvements, upgrades, or repairs to fire safety systems are made when tests or evaluations indicate a problem exists. Notify Campus Safety & Security whenever you notice damage or a possible problem with fire protection equipment.
During the fall and spring semesters, the Fire Life Safety Officer and other staff perform monthly general building fire safety inspections. In addition, Residence Life staff performs resident room inspections twice per semester and once during the summer.
Any fire safety violations will be cited and referred for immediate correction. Fire safety violators may be judicially referred.
The University has a zero-tolerance policy regarding sexual assault, including acquaintance rape. Campus Safety & Security provides ongoing educational programs designed to promote awareness of sexual offenses.
It is the policy of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University that no student or employee may threaten the health and safety of a member of the University community — or any person on University property or at a university-sponsored or supervised activity — through the commission of sexual assault, including acquaintance rape. Anyone that has been a victim of a sexual assault should report it immediately to Campus Safety & Security.
The University provides ongoing educational programs that are designed to promote awareness of sexual offenses. Informational brochures and videos are available through the Counseling Center, and special presentations are conducted by the Campus Safety & Security Department.
The University has established an official Policy and Procedure that includes the following information.
Consideration and rights to be afforded to all campus community members who are victims of sexual assault:
Consideration and additional rights to be afforded to campus community members who are victims of sexual assaults which occur on University property
After campus sexual assaults have been reported, the victims of such crimes shall have:
In addition to any criminal or civil actions that may be pending or in process, the University reserves the right to pursue separate disciplinary action. Persons found responsible for sexual assault may expect disciplinary actions up to and including dismissal from the University.
A number of University personnel are available, if desired, to assist victims of sexual assault as soon as there is knowledge of an incident. Staff from the following departments are available to assist: Counseling Center, Health Services, Housing, Campus Safety & Security, and the Dean of Students.
Any person contacted should do the following:
Any responding University official should notify the Dean of Students Office as soon as possible. This office will determine the following:
A University Judicial Officer and/or the Associate Dean of Students have the responsibility to receive and investigate complaints arising out of claims that the sexual assault policy has been violated. After the investigation, it will be determined if charges are to be brought against a student. If charges are brought, a written notice, hearing date, and time will be forwarded to the student.
After the hearing, it will be determined if the student is to be held responsible for the violation(s). If the student has been found responsible, the appropriate sanction(s) will be applied.
When the sanction(s) does not involve suspension or dismissal from the University, the student may ask for a review of the case by the Dean of Students or his/her designee. When such a review is conducted, the individual will not substitute his/her judgment for that of the original hearing officer, but rather the scope of the review will be limited to determining if a fair hearing has been provided and whether the sanction(s) imposed, given the relevant facts, was appropriate.
When the sanction(s) levied involves suspension or dismissal from the University, a student may request an appeal for a hearing before the University Appeals Board, providing the request is made in writing within two working days following the receipt of a decision.
Granting a request for an appeal/review will be based on evidence not previously presented or on a breach of the student’s rights and responsibilities.
Students are central to the University, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is committed to ensuring their safety and security. The Department of Housing and Residence Life works closely with Campus Safety & Security regarding missing student notifications. Anyone suspecting a student has been missing for 24 hours must immediately notify Campus Safety & Security.
The Higher Education Opportunity Act requires this university to make a policy statement on the campus missing student policy. The policy as stated originates from the Dean of Students Office but is also listed within the Department of Housing and Resident Life policies and the Campus Safety & Security Department policies as compliance to the annual campus security report. A copy of this policy may be obtained from the Campus Safety & Security Department web site. http://prescott.erau.edu/Assets/prescott/forms/Missing-Student-Policy.pdf
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is committed to promoting and maintaining a safe campus environment. In the event of an emergency, specific procedures are in place to protect students, faculty, and staff.
The University maintains methods to communicate immediate emergency information throughout the campus. These systems may be used when campus authorities and/or local emergency responders
The University maintains several methods to communicate immediate emergency information throughout the campus. These systems may be used when campus authorities and/or local emergency responders confirm a significant emergency exists and determine that emergency notification is warranted.
These systems include the following:
The University strongly encourages the campus community to immediately report emergencies or suspicious activity to the Campus Safety & Security Department. Reports of emergency conditions will result in immediate investigation by Campus Safety Officers and may also include notification and response by local emergency responders such as police, fire, or EMS personnel.
In the case of a significant emergency or dangerous situation that could affect the safety of innocent persons, Campus Safety & Security staff will consider if an emergency notification system should be utilized. This process may include prompt consultation with campus and/or local emergency personnel to determine the scope and content of the campus notification.
The University will make every effort to compose a brief but descriptive emergency message that can be issued in a responsible but timely fashion. It is understood that some types of emergencies may cause responsible authorities to temporarily delay mass notification if that action is deemed to compromise immediate efforts being expended to assist the victim or contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the situation.
Subsequent and general information may be communicated via campus email, announcement on ERNIE.
The RAVE system will be tested at least once each semester with advance notification to the campus community via email. The campus siren system is subject to a monthly internal silent test. In addition, the siren will be externally tested twice per year with advance notification communicated through campus-wide email.
The following personnel may be involved in the authorization and/or implementation of emergency notification systems:
When the evacuation of a building or specific area is required, Safety Officers and emergency personnel will provide directional guidance. The University community must follow the directives of Safety Officers and local emergency personnel.
While evacuating an area, always move away from the building to a minimum distance equal to the height of the building being evacuated. Be particularly careful not to block service roadways and entrances.
The campus email publicizing the Fall and Spring RAVE tests will include a reminder for the campus community to reference the emergency procedures listed here. The Fall and Spring RAVE tests will be documented by information from the systems and Campus Safety & Security Communications Center CAD entry.
