Fire Watch Requirements and Log

This information outlines the requirements of a fire watch if the fire alarm and/or sprinkler systems in any West Virginia University building become completely or partially inoperative. A fire watch allows buildings to be temporarily occupied when fire alarm and/or sprinkler systems are out of service. A fire watch is required at all times when buildings are occupied. In unoccupied buildings, the need for a fire watch is determined by the Department of Environmental Health and Safety.
