NEIGHBORHOOD SMOKE-OUT AND FIRE EXTINGUISHER TRAINING                                                                                                                                   

October is National Fire Preventation Month. Historically, this month marks the anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 that burnt out of control for several days and killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless and destroyed more than 17,000 buildings.

In order to increase fire safety awareness, UD's Environmental Health & Safety/Risk Management in the Department of Facilities Management & Campus Operations annually partners with Silco, the Dayton Fire Department, Residential Properties, the UD Neighborhood Fellows and Residence Life to host fire prevention events on campus.  This year, activities will include a live demonstration smoke-out where students can learn first hand about the dangers of fire and how to protect themselves, ask questions, check out new technologies used by the fire department and go through a building filled with simulated smoke.  

These events are considered Engagement Opportunities for students.  Therefore, students can accumulate Path (Points Accumulated Toward Housing) credit by attending these event.  These points can help to determine priority in attaining a student’s desired housing.
