Fire Extinguishers

Clemson University contracts with a third-party vendor to service and maintain fire extinguishers in campus buildings. All official extinguishers are inspected and serviced according to a schedule in order to meet International fire and building codes. In the event that a fire extinguisher needs attention in addition to the routine service schedule, please report this issue to University Facilities 864-656-2186. To report a damaged or missing fire extinguisher also contact University Facilities at 864-656-2186.
