Chapter House Redbook

Every building should have a reliable and updated Emergency Response Plan. The Office of Emergency Preparedness has developed a template, the Redbook, which Building Managers can use to develop this plan. The template is simple, flexible, and easy to complete – just plug in your facility’s information and you have a plan.

Fire Drills/Inspections

Each chapter facility is required to complete a Fire Safety Evacuation Drill and a Fire Safety Inspection each semester. This is mandated by the City of Atlanta, but through a special partnership, is completed by the Georgia Tech Fire Marshal’s staff.

Fire Inspections will be scheduled at the start of every Fall and Spring semesters, Fire Drills will be scheduled EVERY semester.

  • For any construction projects (i.e. Fire Pits, Volleyball/Basketball courts, homecoming structures, wreck parade building sites on chapter property, etc. you must notify the Georgia Tech Fire Marshal (fire@gatech.edu)

GTPD Partnership

Our office and councils have a very close relationship with the Georgia Tech Police Department. We jointly host projects and events such as the GTPD Greek Sector Clean Up, Chapter Adpot-A-Cop, and having staff/student leadership partake in the GT Citizen's Police Academy. This close partnership with GTPD has allowed our office to navigate big campus discussions around risk management, campus carry, and proactive safety precautions for Greek letter organizations with a house on campus. To schedule a safety walk or have your chapter sign up to be a part of the Adopt-A-Cop program, email the Community Outreach Specialist, Officer Jessica Howard (jessica.howard@police.gatech.edu).
