"TIP OF THE DAY"
Campus Fire Safety
With many students returning to their universities from spring break, educating them on campus fire safety and how to stay safe is important. According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), U. S. fire departments responded to an average of 3,800 structure fires in college dormitories and Greek housing in recent years. The National Fire Protection Association indicates these fires cause an annual average of two civilian deaths, 30 civilian fire injuries, and $9.4 million in property damage.
Encourage students to learn their fire risks and prevention actions that can save their lives. The USFA offers several tips, including:
- Use safe flameless candles;
- Keep lamps, light fixtures, and light bulbs away from anything that can burn;
- Only use surge protectors or power strips that have internal overload protection; and
- If a fire starts in a microwave, keep the door closed and unplug the unit.
