Fire Safety

We ensure adherence to fire codes and that all fire risks are addressed.

The Fire Safety Division provides:

  • Routine inspections on fixed and portable fire suppression systems.
  • Regular fire prevention inspections of all UMKC buildings to ensure any fire hazards are identified and corrected.
  • Response to fire alarms as well as any fire related complaints.
  • Basic fire suppression training, which may be scheduled by contacting the Fire Marshal.


Please contact the Fire Safety Division with any questions or concerns regarding fire safety on UMKC Campus.
