Many fire departments are already doing home safety visits or, more commonly called, smoke alarm installs. You can approach them with the idea of having students go with them on these visits, which will provide them with more personnel, expand their reach into other areas of the community (such as off-campus housing) and teach the students about fire safety at the same time. This is a winning solution for everyone all around!
Schools and Students
If you are a fire department looking to expand your pool of resources and involve students in your programs, there are some very distinct benefits to a Campus Fire safety Community Service Project. It provides you with an opportunity to engage with the students in your community in a very positive way and build a relationship with the school. This is a partnership that can help in making both the community safer and the students more knowledgeable about fire safety.
Schools have a number of service organizations on campuses that are often looking for a project.
- Frequently, fraternities and sororities are required to have community service projects. The schools may require that all students do community service.
- A fast-growing trend are community service spring breaks where the students take on projects during their spring break.
- Faith-based organizations are also another great resource to look into for students that are looking to give back to their communities.
- Some schools offer community service projects for the incoming freshman class during orientation.
