Dorm Fire Safety Tips

fire safety, NFPA, dorms, college, tips

With the annual migration of college students from home back to their dorms, now is the perfect time to highlight dorm fire safety with your campus' population.

The National Fire Protection Association has a one-page tip sheet link: (http://www.nfpa.org/assets/files/PDF/Public%20Education/Campussafety.pdf) available dealing with campus fire safety that you can use in your education effort. It is geared at the student audience, with a common sense approach. From what I remember of my college years, never underestimate a student's inability to intuit what "common sense" might mean.

The tips include such items as:

"Learn your building's evacuation plan and practice all drills as if they were the real thing."

"Stay in the kitchen when cooking."

"Use a surge protector for your computer and plug the protector directly into an outlet."

The tip sheets can be found under the Safety Information tab at www.nfpa.org.
