NFPA and The Center for Campus Fire Safety announce winners of 2015 Campus Fire Safety for Students Contest

The two-tiered contest, which ran September 1 – 25 in conjunction with Campus Fire Safety Month, targeted students currently enrolled in an institution of higher learning and was created to help raise awareness of campus fires and encourage students to put safety first. Most college students, many living on their own for the first time, don’t often think to ask or even consider the fire safety implications of their housing choices, and most states don’t require colleges to tell them. The contest encouraged students to learn about and share important fire safety messages with their friends and roommates
