Stop! Drop and roll into the fire safety fair
If those childhood dreams of becoming a firefighter have slipped through your fingers, the next best thing would be to hang out with them. Here’s your chance. The ASU Fire Marshal, ASU Police, Phoenix Fire Department, Phoenix Police Department, and other city and ASU safety related organizations will be having an information and demonstration fair to honor Campus Fire Safety Month on Monday, Sept. 10 from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the lobby of University Center.
Governor Napolitano proclaimed September as Campus Fire Safety Month in Arizona to help increase the awareness and improve community safety for Arizona university and college campuses. Since January 2000, 109 deaths have been attributed to American university and college-based fires. Twenty deaths occurred in the 2006/2007 academic year alone.
With all the new freshmen faces on campus, September is the perfect month to help ensure their safety. The ASU Fire Marshall has asked ASU Safety organizations, including the ASU Health Center and the Public Safety Advisory Committee, as well as the local city, non-profit and businesses to participate in the information fair. The safety fair will provide the university community with many public safety-related opportunities for students, staff, and faculty.
As if hanging out with the firefighters in the yellow jackets wasn’t enough, vendors will be onsite to raffle off fabulous prizes like: fire extinguishers, fire shield, multi-adapter power strip cords and smoke detectors. Stop, drop and roll into a safe semester on campus!
