Fire Safety for Events

The purpose of this program is to define policies and procedures that will ensure compliance with Rhode Island Uniform Fire Code requirements and to ensure fire safety for events that occur inside a Brown University building attended by 50 or more persons.

Whenever 50 or more persons attend an event inside a Brown University property, the individual sponsor or a representative of the sponsoring organization must review this policy prior to the event and assure compliance with the specified procedures before and during the event.

This policy applies to individuals and the representatives of organizations who sponsor events that take place inside university buildings.
