Fire Marshal

The campus Fire Marshal is the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) on fire and life safety code interpretation and compliance for the University. Duties include conducting fire and life safety inspections of alarm and suppression systems, review of special permits and projects including new construction and renovations of buildings, addressing fire and life safety concerns, public education, and training.

As a state of Utah institution of higher learning Dixie State University has adopted the International Fire Code 2012. The purpose of the code is to establish the minimum requirements consistent with nationally recognized good practices for providing a reasonable level of life safety and property protection from hazards of fire, explosion, or dangerous conditions in new and existing buildings, structures or premise, and to provide safety to fire fighters and emergency responders during emergency operations.
