The Georgia Tech Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) is responsible for providing technical guidance, oversight, consultation, and training about public health, safety, and environmental protection. Many staff within EH&S partner with event planners to create safe, welcoming environments for our guests.
When to Alert the Fire Marshal
Fire Marshal Larry Labbe should always be alerted when planning any large events, outdoor events, those involving fire, or those staged in unique venues.
All tents and electrical setups must be reviewed and approved by the fire marshal.
Contact EHS at least 4 weeks prior to your event to schedule a walk-through during your event setup.
Remember to register your event in advance with EHS if you have a large event, an outdoor event, unique setups, or extensive electrical.
Consider Electricity Safety
When electricity is needed for an outdoor event, a power source or generator is encouraged.
