Fire and Life Safety Management

As part of the recent reorganization of the Office of Facilities Planning and Management (“Facilities”), the management of the SMU Fire and Life Safety Program has changed. Facilities and the Office of Risk Management (“Risk Management”) are now working even more closely to keep the campus safe.

Campus fire protection systems are now managed by Facilities. If you have any questions or concerns regarding fire sprinklers, fire alarms panels, fire extinguishers, etc., please contact Facilities Services at 214-768-7000.

Other Fire and Life Safety duties, including evacuation drills, building inspections, hot work permits, and fire extinguisher training, will continue to be managed by Risk Management. You can reach Risk Management on our general line at 214-768-2083.

As always, in an emergency please call dispatch (214-768-3333).

If you’re unsure of whom to contact, feel free to give Risk Management a call at 214-768-2083, send us an email at, or visit us in Dawson Service Center and we’ll be happy to assist you.
