Very soon many young people will be heading off to college — some for the first time. It is a time of big change for first time collegians beginning the next stage in their lives. Fire Safety is probably the last thing that families are thinking about as they head off to college. However, Fire Safety is very important — even more so in dorms or apartment buildings with hundreds of young students. Even more critical is “off-campus” housing that may not be covered by campus housing rules as we were so vividly reminded by the tragic fire at Marist College in Poughkeepsie a few years ago.
