The Minger Foundation has created an RA Guide to Teaching Fire Safety, series of posters, and videos that you can use in helping to teach fire safety to the students on your floors.

Action Steps

  1. Print out the posters and use them on your bulletin boards.
  2. Talk about fire safety using the To Know and Action Items in the Guide to Teaching Fire Safety which contains more information, talking points and other resources that will help you.
  3. Encourage the students to scan the QR code on the poster which will take them to Causes and Origins, The Best Defense is a Good Offense, Your Room, or For the Price of a Pizza

All of the students will eventually be leaving the residence halls and living on their own. The fire safety messages you give them are not only for while they are living in the residence halls but, literally, for the rest of their lives. What they learn here will stay with them forever and may, someday, save their lives.

To know…

  • There is a lot more information that your students need to know to be fire safe.
  • You are providing them with some of the key pieces of information, but if they want more, there are links on the pages the posters are sending them to.
  • They need to know this information not only for when they are living in the residence halls but for when they move out.
  • They need to know this information for when they are visiting friends who are living off-campus.
  • Once they move out, this might have been the only time they get fire safety information.
  • These are resources that you can use for bulletin boards.
  • It is important to make them aware of fire safety because these are lessons for life.
  • Over 85% of the campus-related fire deaths happen in off-campus housing where most of the students live.
  • When the students move out of the residence halls into off-campus, they need to know these lessons

What you can do

  • You are a key part of getting this information in their hands. You can help save lives.
  • Print out the posters and use them on your bulletin boards.
  • Talk about fire safety using the To Know and Action Items in the guide.
  • The Guide to Teaching Fire Safety to Students contains more information, talking points and other resources that will help you.
  • Encourage your students to scan the QR code to go to a page with more information and links.

Videos

There are a series of videos that you can encourage your students to watch online to learn more about fire safety. You can send them the links to these videos.

Resources

We have created a series of posters that you can print out (they are PDF 11”x17”) and put on your bulletin boards. They have a QR code on them that will take the students to web pages with more information on fire safety, pictures, videos and back-stories on some of the incidents.
