Please note: Thompson Rivers University is charged $500 for each instance that Kamloops Fire Rescue is called out for a false alarm. In situations where a group or individual has not received appropriate permission to hold a smudge, or exceeds the recommended guidelines for a smudge on campus, the fine shall be levied on the group or individual responsible for triggering the false alarm. All costs relating to the temporary impairment and subsequent restoration of fire detection services shall be borne by the applicant, including additional labour (i.e. Fire Watch) that may be necessary during the fire detection system impairment.
