Fire Alarm and Sprinker Systems
Unless otherwise noted below, all Union College fire alarm systems within residential buildings contain smoke detection in each sleeping area, hallway, and common area. These devices are tied into a central fire alarm panel within the building and transmitted to a central monitoring station that is manned 24 hours a day by Union College Campus Safety.
As per New York State Fire Code, Union College notifies the local Fire Department upon receiving a general building fire alarm. In addition to our 911 link, Union College has direct radio communication abilities with the Schenectady Fire Department.
