New Student Fire Safety Talks

1 hour; 30 minute presentation followed by 30 mins Questions & Answer

This is an essential session for all Universities and Colleges to ensure all new students on campus have a basis understanding of the potential fire risks and actions to take in the event of a fire.

Course Aim

This talk is for staff and students and covers some basic fire safety risks, many being ones that students are unaware of. As many students will be living away from home for the first time the talk is an essential part of keeping them safe when living on their own. It also provides the University/ College with the confidence that new students have been given a comprehensive briefing on their specific fire safety and evacuation procedures as we review your fire safety plans and policy documents ahead of the talk so we can personalised it to your organisation.

Currently the talk can only be delivered remotely, allowing for unlimited number of attendees.

Course Content Includes

  • Overview of common causes of student fire, actions to be taken in the event of a fire, actions that prevent fires
  • Presentation to all students on your organisation’s specific fire safety and evacuation procedures
