Any resident caught falsely pulling fire alarms or tampering with fire safety devices will face severe disciplinary consequences, including a fine of $500, possible expulsion from the hall and legal prosecution. It is considered a felony in the State of Illinois to tamper with fire safety equipment.
Each suite-style room is equipped with a sprinkler system that follows fire code for the City of Chicago. These sprinklers will be activated by intense heat and will emit several hundreds gallons of water in a very short time. If a sprinkler is activated for any other reason, i.e. by an object being thrown at it or tampering with the sprinkler heads in each room, the resident(s) will be responsible for all damages that occur to the building.
