SAFE ON CAMPUS
More than 10 million young adults between ages 18 and 24 are going to college this fall. Students will be equipped with the latest computers, mp3 players and clothes, and ready to take on college life. But experts say they won’t necessarily be ready to face an emergency situation like a residence hall or apartment fire.
September is Campus Fire Safety Month, and the nonprofit Center for Campus Fire Safety (CCFS), along with state and federal lawmakers, The Home Depot and Kidde, a leading fire safety product manufacturer, want to remind parents and students about this potentially deadly risk.
Educate your readers about how to reduce their child’s risk of becoming a victim of a campus-related fire.
