Fire & Life Safety:

The entire UTD campus fire alarm system is being monitoring 24-7 via a SimplexGrinnell Information management system. This IMS operates on a fiber optic loop connected to every building fire panel on the Richardson campus. All 30 of UTD's buildings have primary reporting to the University Police and secondary reporting to EHS and EMS. 24 of 30 buildings have a Class A reporting loop for redundancy via SimplexGrinnell IMS fire system network. 6 of 33 buildings have Class B reporting via class B fiber optics or a Digital Alarm Communication Transmitter (DACT), due to non-network hardware or distance constraints (South campus). Fire and Life Safety oversees over 3000 alarm initiating devices, 3300 alarm indicating devices, 700 portable fire extinguishers, and 19 buildings with 26 sprinkler systems as well as 14 special hazard systems.
