POLICY ON OPEN FLAMES IN GREEK HOUSES

Candles and incense prohibited from use in individual’s rooms. Candles or incense may only be used in ceremonies, rituals, initiations and special events such as alumni dinners, memorial services, etc. only when all of the following criteria have been met:

* Notification of event shall be made in writing to University Fire Services 700 Hathorn Road, University, MS 38677.
* At least one individual shall be designated as the Safety Monitor when candles are being used. The Safety Monitor shall observe candle use and ensure that proper precautions have taken place. The Safety Monitor shall have the proper knowledge on how to use a fire extinguisher and know where the fire extinguishers are located. Should a fire occur and no one is in immediate danger, the Safety Monitor shall attempt to extinguish the fire by using a fire extinguisher. (University Fire Services may be contacted for training on how to use a fire extinguisher properly. 662-915-7051)
* If at any point the fire becomes too large or people are in immediate danger, evacuate the building immediately and then call 911.
* Lit candles shall not be left unattended.
* Proper candle placement is imperative to ensure that a fire is not started by placing candles near, above or below flammable materials such as curtains, towels, tablecloths, etc. Care should also be taken to ensure that dripping wax will not cause any burns to persons or property. * Care should be taken to extinguish candles in a well ventilated area so as not to accidentally activate the building’s fire alarm system.
