NFPA joins The Center for Campus Fire Safety and University of New Haven Fire Science Club students for video shoot

Over the last five years, 27 étudiants morts dans un incendie dans les trois miles de leur école. Beaucoup plus ont été blessées et beaucoup ont été laissés sans un endroit pour vivre.

In September, NFPA, The Center for Campus Fire Safety and the students of the University of New Haven Fire Science Club will be launching an online contest as part of our national Campus Fire Safety for Students campaign to increase awareness of the seriousness of campus fires, and to encourage students to take action and share information with their peers.

Last week, Cathy Tabor from The Center, my NFPA colleague, Kyle, and I traveled to New Haven to meet with the students and shoot a video as part of the campaign. Together with tips sheets and infographics, an updated website and more, the students are pointing to the contest in the hopes that it will play a key role in the start of a fire safety conversation between students and their parents, and between friends.

Kyle, Cathy and I had a great time shooting the video with the students. They are an incredibly passionate, intelligent group who care deeply about this subject, and they are determined to spread this campus fire safety message far and wide. As you can imagine, The Center and NFPA are equally excited to help them achieve this goal.

So please check back at our website this summer for more information about the campaign and our contest. We look forward to hearing what you think about our newest initiative, and we definitely want to hear what actions you as a parent, and your sons and daughters will take to help prevent fires on college campuses across American and beyond. We hope you’ll join us. Stay tuned!
