September 9, 2008 | EHSO Council

September 2008 is the fourth annual National Campus Fire Safety Month. The 2008 campaign is being co-sponsored by Campus Firewatch, the Ohio Fire Safety coalition and the Congressional Fire Services Institute. The month is designed to raise awareness of fire prevention and what to do if a fire breaks out. For more information, visit http://campusfiresafetymonth.org/index.html.

Department of Homeland Security issued a Fire Safety 101 Sheet for Colleges and Universities. It is downloadable and may be posted to keep staff, faculty and students informed of potential hazards and safety precautions.
