September is Campus Fire Safety Month!

This national observance aims to raise awareness about fire safety on college and university campuses.  With thousands of students living in dormitories and apartments, it’s crucial that they be educated about fire prevention, evacuation procedures, and the importance of having working smoke detectors. According to the U.S Fire Administration, the combination of working smoke detectors and fire sprinklers will reduce the likelihood of a fire fatality by more than 82 percent!

Review the preparation checklist below provided by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). By following and sharing this checklist, you can create a secure and protected environment for yourself and others.
