Welcome Back Students signs are popping up all over college campuses in our area.  Parents, as you get ready to move your kids into their dorms or new apartments, take a few minutes to review over the following college campus fire safety tips published by the National Fire Protection Association:

  • If moving into an apartment or rental house, make sure smoke alarms are installed in each sleeping room, outside every sleeping area and on each level of the apartment unit or house.
  • If moving into a dorm, make sure your sleeping room has a smoke alarm
  • Never remove batteries or disable the alarm
  • Stay in the kitchen when cooking
  • Know the apartment complex’s rules for grilling and only grill in the designated areas
  • Know the school’s rules for using electrical appliances in you room
  • Burn candles only if your school permits
  • Never leave a candle unattended and make sure it is placed away from anything that can burn

PHC Restoration hopes that everyone has a safe and fun school year!
