Week 1- Fire Safety for College Students

As the fall semester approaches, colleges and universities are busy preparing for the arrival of new residents to their campus communities. Some will be first-year students moving into the residence halls. Other arriving students will be moving off-campus living on their own, some for the first time. For most of these students, the last fire safety training they received was in grade school; but with new independence comes new responsibilities. It is both important that both off-campus and on-campus students understand fire risks and know the preventative measures that could save their lives. Living off-campus often means that there often aren’t automatic fire sprinklers, missing or disabled smoke alarms. Students who live on their own can also have careless judgments from alcohol consumption. In 2010-2014 U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated annual average of 3,970 structure fires in dormitories, fraternities, sororities, and barracks. On average there was 1 civilian death and 35 civilian injuries per fire. Most fires start in the kitchen area.
