Safety reminder for furniture with built in power outlets

During the recent fire inspection of campus by the NYS Office of Fire Prevention and Control (OFPC), many violations were identified relating to furniture and desks that contain built-in power outlets. The use of these items is becoming more prevalent on campus.

As a safety reminder, no power strips or extension cords should be plugged into these items. In addition, these should be plugged directly into a wall or floor outlet.
