Campus Fire Safety
Boulder Fire has developed a specific curriculum for college students. Data shows that the university student population is at high risk to fire loss and injury. With the university's cooperation and support, we developed a fire safety partnership. Our goal is to reduce the risk of fire to these citizens (some living independently for the first time).
The program has grown from contacting 120 students and staff in 1998 to training over 3,000 students and staff in fire safety in 2001. Fire safety posters and other materials are also being used by local landlords and property managers to get the word out to this high risk population. This innovative program has garnered national attention from other universities and their fire departments anxious to reduce student fire losses.
