  Aggravated Assault* is calculated according to the number of victims involved in an incident.
  For the 2009 year the correct number of reported Burglaries should have been 0 and the number of Drug Law
  Violations should have been 0. It could not be determined by the information that was presented to TUPD if these
  offenses occurred on Clery defined geographical location of “On-campus.”
  These statistics were obtained from the City of Biloxi Police Department.
  These statistics are for the area of the mall where the campus is located. The mall is located at 2600 Beach Blvd.

ing Fire Prevention Week. This also includes training on the use of
portable fire extinguishers for faculty, staff, students and visitors.
Information on fire safety in the form of articles is published
through the Tulane SafetyWave, a newsletter distributed to all
faculty, staff and students on a quarterly basis by OEHS.
    During the month of October the theme of the quarterly
meeting of the departmental safety representatives is fire safety.
Each department at Tulane University is required to select a facul-
ty or staff member to serve as their safety representative. These
representatives must attend each quarterly meeting, coordinate
inspections of their work areas and coordinate safety training.
Also, at the time of the July meeting, the representatives will be
provided training on the use of portable fire extinguishers.
    Through HRL, fire safety sanction meetings are held as need-
ed with students who violate any fire safety rules. They must meet
with the manager of OEHS responsible for fire safety to discuss
fire safety and generate a report on the meeting.
    To report a fire, each person must contact the designated
number for emergency response by Tulane University Police ex-
cept in the case of the Papillon apartment facility, which is off
campus. The person who discovers a fire at the Papillon Apart-
ments must first call 911 for immediate response by the NOFD.
For further information, please see the Emergency Action Plans
written by OEHS for each building. These are available at the
OEHS website.
    If a member of the Tulane community finds evidence of a fire
that has been extinguished, and the person is not sure whether
TUPD has already responded, the community member should im-
mediately notify TUPD to investigate and document the incident.
    The following are plans for future improvement in fire safety
in the residential facilities which are being developed or which
have been initiated. In 2011 utilizing funds from a federal grant, TU
conducted a live burn on the Uptown Campus with the assistance
of the New Orleans Fire Department. The event was professional-
ly videotaped and is being used for fire safety training purposes
with positive comments. Safety policies and procedures have
been developed on the use of grills on campus with training being
provided to the students. A new fire alarm system with public ad-
dress and speakers in each apartment has been installed in the
Deming Pavilion. A new fire alarm system is being considered for
Sharp Hall. In 2011, a new residence hall, Weatherhead Hall was
constructed to replace an existing facility that was demolished.
This new residence hall is equipped with an automatic sprinkler
system throughout and a full fire alarm system.
