The primary focus is to prevent the loss of life and property resulting from fire-related incidents. The program focuses
upon an ongoing regimen of facility inspections, evacuation drills, flammable chemical control and education. A consistent
and transparent relationship with the Winston-Salem Fire Department is practiced to ensure fire planning
is pertinent and up to date.
Our Fire/Life Safety program relies on the coordinated efforts of students, employees, faculty and Wake Forest Baptist Medical
Center departments and external agencies. WFBMC rests in the jurisdiction of the Winston-Salem Fire Department. The WFBMC
Fire and Life Safety Program is responsible for conducting Fire Safety Inspections, Fire Safety Training, and managing
compliance with the Local and State Fire Safety Regulations and Codes as well as any applicable OSHA programs. This is
a cooperative effort between Environmental Health and Safety, WFBMC Engineering Services and WFBMC Safety.
