Over the last decade there has
been a downward trend to on-campus related fires and fire fatalities,
since its highest in 2006-2007 with 20 on-campus deaths.
The last fatal fire in a "Greek
House" (fraternity/sorority) was 2006.
The last fatal residence hall
fire occurred in 2005.
Off-campus housing is still a
great concern and risk for students.
All Hazard Approach
Recent statistics show a significant downward trend to fire and related
incidents on campus. In 2011, we re-focused our efforts to include an
"All Hazard" approach; expanding our focus to include emergency
preparedness, emergency management, and general safety. Our philosophy
is to provide the resources and expertise necessary to prepare for,
respond to, recover from, and prevent or reduce the loss of life and/or
property from unexpected emergencies.
Preventing Cooking Fires
Cooking accounts for 83% of all campus
housing fires. Stovetop cooking is the “# 1 cause of residential fires”
throughout North America!
We have partnered with Pioneering Technology
to help get the word out and provide information about proven technology

Every Student Goes Home
Every year we take on new initiatives and support various
projects. As you start winding down this academic school year many
students are preparing to move "off campus" and seek housing
arrangements for the next step in their lives. I want to turn our
focus and efforts
on creating an environment free from the dangers of fire, and fire
related injuries & fatalities to our nations future.
One of the goals all educational
institutions have across the world is that at the end of the school year - Every
Student Goes Home!
Our new slogan and goal is a
combined effort for
unified safety on and off campus through education and an
educational dialog between students, parents, campus administrators,
housing officials (both on and off campus) and the local fire
Join us in the efforts to create a unified nationally
accepted plan for protecting our students.

taskforce. Please e-mail Randy Hormann (info below) with your desire to

Task-Force on “Off Campus Fire Related

working hard to

off campus housing fire deaths. Once completed, there will be a
website to view all of our research information, and to obtain training
tools. A number of
professional organizations including the US Fire Administration have
agreed to partner with us in this endeavor.

Federal Law - Campus Fire Safety Right-to-Know Act
into law by then President Bush; this law is designed to increase fire
safety awareness on college/university campuses across the nation by
providing students and their families with the fire safety records of
colleges/universities. This act was designed to require post-secondary
institutions to publicly display fire safety information and statistics,
much as they already do with other safety statistics, such as campus
theft and assault. This information would inform prospective and current
students of the policies, concerns and fire safety conditions that are
present at the institution in which they have applied or are enrolled.
Through the educational division, we can assist your institution in managing
reporting requirements and provide audits to ensure compliance with this
federal law. Please contact us to set up
an appointment to discuss how we can assist you.
