FIRE SAFETY FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS
Thousands of college students are moving into dorms and off-campus housing at colleges and universities across the country. The National Fire Prevention Association urges parents and students to take time to review life-saving fire safety information and plan escape routes for your room or house. The leading cause of campus fires is cooking, with cooking equipment involved in 75 percent of reported dormitory fires. Other causes of college housing fires include smoking, candles, and electrical wiring or overloads. Review campus rules concerning fire safety precautions and follow guidelines related to cooking, candles, and smoking on campus. Take special precautions not to overload the electrical service for your room. For more information on campus fire safety, visit the NFPA’s website at www.nfpa.org.
