In order to comply with Life Safety Code standards established by the National Fire Protection Association, and to remain consistent with what other peer institutions have begun as well, Calvin has instituted a "Health and Safety Inspection" for all on-campus residence hall and apartment rooms. Each year in September and January, RAs will stop by with a Health and Safety form, which you and the RA will briefly fill out together. Items to check will include smoke detectors, electrical cords, screens in windows, etc. This simple and fast check will be repeated in January, and is meant to promote the safest possible environment on campus. Please note that these are NOT the bathroom and shower checks—that process is separate and will also be conducted in January.
