Main Report

The Higher Education Opportunity Act became law in August 2008 and requires all United States academic institutions to produce an annual fire safety report outlining fire safety practices, standards, and all fire related on- campus statistics. The following public disclosure report details all information required by this law as it relates to Franciscan University.

General Statement of Franciscan University Residence Halls

Fire Safety Improvements and Upgrades

Franciscan University Physical Plant Services reviews and inspects the fire systems in the Residence Halls semi-annually and implements upgrades, repairs, or makes revisions whenever issues are identified.

Residence Hall Fire Drills

Fire drills are held for each residence hall once a month during any full month that the residence hall is occupied by students and are mandatory supervised evacuations for fire. The drill is conducted by the Residence life staffs who notify Physical Plant Services, Security, the local Fire Department and the Franciscan University Information Center of the date(s) and time(s) of the drill(s). Failure to evacuate a residence hall when a fire alarm sounds is against Steubenville City Ordinance and Franciscan University policy. Students who fail to leave the residence during a fire drill are disciplined in accordance with the policies described in the Student Handbook.

Fire Safety Policies

All appliances used in the Residence Halls must be U.L. approved. Items not permitted include, but are not limited to, open element appliances, space heaters, hot plates, deep fat fryers, rotisseries, roasters, toaster ovens, sun lamps, halogen lamps, window or free standing air conditioners or Foreman grills. Residence Directors have the authority to request the removal of other appliances at their discretion. Students are encouraged to use power strips and surge protectors with all appliances.

Smoking is not permitted in any Residence Hall or within 30 feet of any entrance or air intake. No open flames are permitted, including burning of incense, candles, or potpourri. Candles are permitted for Lord’s Day Celebrations. All other exceptions to this policy for special events such as birthdays must be approved by the Residence Director. Students are not permitted to use highly flammable material when decorating rooms. These include, but are not limited to, hanging material from the ceiling, straw, leaves, and live Christmas trees.

Reporting a Fire

Students reporting a fire should contact the local fire department by dialing 911 from a cell phone or 9(911) from a campus phone. If the fire event is no longer a danger, the Resident Director or the Resident Assistant should be contacted as soon as possible and the fire event reported to the Department of Security.

Fire Evacuation Procedures

The policy on building evacuation from Residence Halls is located in the Residence Life Handbook and is discussed with students when they move into the residence hall. In the case of fire, students are instructed to sound the nearest fire alarm, move quickly to the nearest stairwell, exit the building and gather in the location designated for the particular hall. Students are told to follow the instructions of the Residence Life Staff, security officers and fire personnel

Fire Safety Education and Training

Residence Life professional and student staff are trained on fire safety by Physical Plant Services at the beginning of the fall semester and as required in the spring and summer semesters. Hands-on fire extinguisher training is provided by Physical Plant Services. The Resident Director of each residence hall receives one-on-one training on the redundant monitoring system. Security personnel are trained by Jefferson Security during orientation to the company.

Fire Log

The Franciscan University Department of Security maintains a fire log that records any fire that occurred in an on-campus student housing facility and includes information such as the nature, date, time and general location of each fire. Any entry to the log is required to be made within two business days of the receipt of the information. The fire log for the most recent 60 day period remains open for public inspection during normal business hours. Any portion of the log older than 60 days will be available within two business days after receipt of a request for public inspection.

Emergency Phone Numbers

Fire Statistics

Fire Report and Statistics, Austria Program

Annual Fire Safety Report

The Higher Education Opportunity Act became law in August 2008 and requires all United States academic institutions to produce an annual fire safety report outlining fire safety practices, standards, and all fire related on- campus statistics. The following public disclosure report details all information required by this law as it relates to Franciscan University.

General Statement of Franciscan University Residence Halls

The Residence Halls at the Franciscan University Study Abroad Program in Gaming, Austria (with the exception of Santa Chiara, Tract 4) are covered by a redundant fire alarm monitoring system which is monitored 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

Tact 4 / Santa Chiara Hall is rented space and is only equipped with fire alarms and fire extinguishers.

Fire extinguishers are distributed throughout the residence halls and tea kitchens.

House Elisabeth Kartause1, A-3292 Gaming, Austria  Yes No Yes Yes 2
Santa Chiara     Kartause1, A-3292 Gaming, Austria  Yes No Yes No 2

Fire Safety Improvements and Upgrades

The Kartause Maria Throne Foundation reviews and inspects the fire systems in the Residence Halls semi-annually and implements upgrades, repairs, or makes revisions whenever issues are identified. They work closely with the local fire department to ensure our practices, procedures, and infrastructure is up-to-date and up to code.

Residence Hall Fire Drills

Fire drills are held for each residence hall once each semester when the residence hall is occupied by students. The fire drills are conducted by the Hotel Supervisory Staff in conjunction with the Residence Directors, Residence Assistants, the Director of Student Life, and the local Fire Department. Failure to evacuate a residence hall when a fire alarm sounds is against Franciscan University policy. Students who fail to leave the residence during a fire drill are disciplined in accordance with the policies described in the Student Handbook.

Fire Safety Policies

All appliances used in the Residence Halls must be in compliance with local regulations. Students are encouraged to use power strips with all appliances.

Smoking is not permitted in any Residence Hall or within 30 feet of any entrance or air intake. No open flames are permitted, including burning of incense, candles, or potpourri. Candles are permitted for Lord’s Day Celebrations. All other exceptions to this policy for special events such as birthdays must be approved by the Residence Director. Students are not permitted to use highly flammable material when decorating rooms. These include, but are not limited to, hanging material from the ceiling, straw, leaves, and fire crackers.

Reporting a Fire

The fire alarm system installed in the Austrian program will automatically contact the fire department if the alarm sounds for more than 3 minutes. The Hotel staff is also automatically notified by the alarm system as they are responsible for turning off the alarm. Students reporting a fire should contact any staff member of the hotel or university. In extreme emergencies, the fire department may be reached directly by dialing 122.

Fire Evacuation Procedures

The policy on building evacuation from Residence Halls is located in the Austrian Program Handbook, and is discussed with students when they move into the residence hall. In the case of fire, students are instructed to sound the nearest fire alarm, move quickly to the nearest stairwell, exit the building per the evacuation arrows, and gather in the area near the St. Francis Fountain as directed by the local fire department. If there is inclement weather outside student will be ushered into the church or some other appropriate accommodation. Students are told to follow the instructions of the Residence Life Staff, security officers and fire personnel.

Fire Safety Education and Training

Residence Life professional and student staff are trained on fire safety at the beginning of the fall semester and as required in the spring and summer semesters. The Resident Directors receive one-on-one training on the redundant monitoring system.

Fire Log

The Kartause Gaming Hotel Staff administer the fire log for the Austrian Study Abroad Program.

Emergency Phone Numbers
