08.26.15 - Fire Safety For Off-Campus Housing

 

As many students return to campus for the beginning of a new school year, it is crucial that we raise awareness about the importance of having a secondary means of egress in rental homes.  If you, your son or daughter, or someone you know is currently in this situation, I encourage you to contact the landlord and work together to secure a safe escape plan with an egress ladder. We need to make sure our families, neighbors, and children can get out safely in the event of a fire.
