Fire Prevention Training/Education
Fire safety training and education is a priority topic in the year-long residence life training cycle. Prior to each semester, the Director of Residence and Student Life and the Student Development Coordinator review with the Front Desk and RA/SA staff, the proper procedures of fire safety as well as review the proper protocol for drills and evacuation. These procedures are also reviewed again mid-semester and are discussed after each fire drill to ensure staff understanding of the things they did correctly as well as any area needing improvement/correction prior to the next drill.
The RA/SA staff also work with the local fire department. Fire department staff demonstrates proper fire extinguisher use; the firefighters also discuss fire safety measures.
The on-campus residents are oriented regarding protocol for fire drills as well as the proper evacuation routes they would utilize in the event of a fire in a housing unit. The RA/SA and professional staff again reviews the information at all mandatory floor meetings that are scheduled at the commencement of each semester. Fire drill reviews are also held with all students at the first scheduled floor meetings (mandatory) following a fire drill.
