2014 Annual Fire Prevention Inspection

The annual fire prevention inspection of all office and laboratory spaces will be conducted by the UC Davis fire department in March.  Please check that your coffee makers, microwave and toaster ovens, are plugged directly into a wall receptacle.  Extension cords and surge protectors are not allowed for these types of appliances.  Surge protectors must plug directly into a wall receptacle and lay flat on the floor or desk surface.  Extension cords may not be used with a surge protector to reach a wall receptacle. Please contact the department safety coordinator, Peter Klavins, if you have questions or concerns about your area.
