Living in a college dorm room brings about many challenges for a student from learning to live with one to multiple roommates to finding additional college storage options for all of the items that are accumulated throughout the school year. College is a great time, but safety should never be taken for granted. It is important to follow some basic dorm room safety tips in order to keep the student and their belongings safe throughout the school year.
Congress declared the month of September as Campus Fire Safety Month in order to remind college students to be more cautious and pay attention to campus fire safety rules. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, 86 fatal fires occurred on college campuses or off-campus housing within 3 miles of campus claiming 123 lives. More than 80% of the fire fatalities occurred in off-campus housing with the majority of fires caused by cooking fires. Other causes of fires in college dorms or apartments include overloaded power strips, candles, space heaters and arson. College students should always check with their colleges to see what is allowable in the dorm, such as small appliances or candles. These are possible fire hazards and extra caution needs to be performed around these items. The National Fire Protection Association recommends a variety of tips for basic dorm and off-campus fire safety for college students as well as specifics for candle, cooking, smoking, and electrical devise safety.
