"Stop and Knock" Fire Safety Campaign Reached Off-Grounds Student Residents

As part of Fire Prevention month, the University helped promote fire safety in the “Stop and Knock” campaign on October 14–15.   The campaign targeted students who live in off Grounds rental housing in neighborhoods close to the University, including Venable, Lewis Mountain, and the JPA/Fontaine corridor.  The campaign was initiated in 2013 following a fire on Wertland Street ignited by an upholstered sofa on the front porch.

'Take 3' for Safety

Take 3 for Safety

The time of crisis is not the time to plan. Emergencies can happen unexpectedly, and everyone needs to be prepared to act in an emergency. Please TAKE 3 minutes as you begin this semester to consider these three things:

  • How you will be notified in an emergency
  • Where you would evacuate from class or residence
  • Where you would shelter in place in class or residence

For Parents

While it is impossible to predict every emergency that could occur, the following information offers a general guide to help you plan ahead and understand how the University communicates with students and parents when emergencies and critical incidents occur.  The Parent FAQ provides an important overview.
