Across the country, colleges and universities are welcoming new students onto their campuses while the need for fire safety and prevention education is a growing concern. It’s understandable, considering the National Fire Protection Association has reported that fire departments responded to almost 4000 campus housing fires between 2009 and 2013. Even more startling is a related report by the United States Fire Administration showing that of the 85 fatal fires documented between 2000 and 2015, 58 percent of them began in dormitories, fraternities or sororities where smoke alarms were either missing or disconnected.
While just 85 fatal fires in campuses across the U.S. during a 15 year period forecasts the risk of dying in a dormitory fire as statistically low, just one life lost due to the lack of fire safety precautions is too many. That’s why state and federal officials are working to improve fire safety efforts in the student housing structures at every college and university.
One of the simplest ways to ensure campus living and fire safety is to keep working and well-maintained smoke alarms in every housing facility and sleeping area, but there are also a number of ways you can promote and encourage precautionary efforts on the part of every student. Here are some products that can help!
Nowadays, townships, government offices, schools and even private businesses are working together to chip in and provide families and community members with the means to keep themselves safe in the event of a fire by giving out smoke detectors. For an affordable price, you can do this and also add your own important fire safety message to every smoke detector.
A simple message magnet can help you remind students and building maintenance personnel to regularly check smoke alarms, as well as provide them your important message and contact information. With a 3″ x 5″ surface and a full-color imprint included, the possibilities are limitless.
A stylish and durable backpack is a great gift for RAs who have gone above and beyond to make sure their respective dormitories are kept safe and free of fire hazards at all times. This is also great for incoming students who have completed a fire safety and prevention seminar during your annual campus safety event.
With most of their time spent with their heads in a book, students will have plenty of use for your custom printed bookmarks featuring tips on how to safely escape a fire. Add your logo and safety message to keep your important lesson fresh in their minds day in and day out.
