Information for a safer UWEC

Our goal is to help educate, interpret, and develop policies and procedures to achieve compliance with federal and state regulations. This is accomplished through efficient and effective hazardous waste management, training and technical programs, environmental audits/monitoring, and safety audits.

Fire Door Safety

Fire Door

Fire Doors are important because they keep fire or smoke in certain areas and stops fire from spreading throughout the building.  Fire doors are an integral part of any building’s passive fire protection system. 


Click Fire Door Information to learn more on the importance of fire doors and keeping them closed.

To raise awareness about the importance of being prepared and equipped for a disaster, please see the ideas below.  Some simple steps that you can do at home to help feel more prepared for a possible disaster.

  1. Make a Plan - Talk to your friends and family about how you will communicate before, during, and after a disaster.  Make sure to keep your plan updated (include relevant Health Department recommendations).
  2. Build a Kit - Gather supplies that will last for several days after a disaster for everyone living in your home.  Don't forget to consider the unique needs each person or pet may have in case you have to evacuate quickly.  Update your kits and supplies as needed.
  3. Low-Cost, No-Cost Preparedness - Limit the impacts the disasters have on you and your family.  Know the risk of disasters in your area and check your insurance coverage.  Learn how to make your home stronger in the face of storms and other common hazards and act fast if you receive a local warning or alert.
  4. Teach Youth About Preparedness - Talk to your kids about preparing for emergencies and what to do in case you are separated.  Reassure them by providing information about how they can get involved.
