Benedict president: Fire violations mostly fixed

Mar 26, 2010 12:35:00 AM - thestate.com
Benedict College president David Swinton said Thursday most of the college's hundreds of fire code violations in the past two years have either been corrected or were in the process of being fixed. Most were minor and not life-threatening, he said.

At no time, said Swinton, were any students in danger since the 2,800-student historically black college in Columbia has security forces in place around the clock.

"We are trying to become the most (fire safety) compliant campus in the state," said Swinton, 67, president of the college some 16 years. He spoke at a news conference called to address the violations and publicity.

"We will not have any unsafe conditions on our campus that threaten the health and safety of our students," he said.
