Fire Statistics and Annual Reports

The federal Higher Education Opportunity Act, enacted on August 14, 2008, requires institutions that maintain on-campus student housing facilities to publish an ongoing log (beginning January 1, 2009) for fires which occur in on-campus student housing, as well as an annual Fire Safety Report that contains fire statistics for the year as well as information about campus fire safety practices and standards.

When fires occur, they are entered onto the log within 2 business days as required by the HEOA.

From 2009 through 2011, the former UCSC Fire Department published a seperate Fire Safety Report each year in addition to the UCSC Police Department's Campus Security Report. These reports are available in the left menu.

Beginning in 2012, these reports were combined into a consolidated Campus Security and Fire Safety Report, which is available on the UCSC Police Department's website at the link below.
