FRESNO FIRE DEPARTMENT
DORMITORY FIRE SAFETY LESSON PLAN
Seton Hall Lacked Inspections
California State Fire Marshal is Authority
Unable to Conduct Inspections due to Staff
Annual Inspections by Staff are Important
Fresno Fire Department Can Help
Analysis of the Seton Hall fire revealed inspections were lacking prior to the fire. The State Fire Marshal is understaffed to cover all buildings in California. There are currently only 22 deputies covering the entire state. They are responsible for all state owned buildings, schools in unincorporated areas, hospitals, jails and prisons in California. This workload is overwhelming. Hospitals may be reassigned to the Department of Health Services. This will free up time for occupancies like CSUF dorms. Until that time, we need to continue annual inspections by the staff. Feel free to call on Fresno Fire Department for assistance.
