Join Us Thursday, August 24th!

Fire Extinguisher

Please join us with your RA’s on Move-In Night, August 24th!  
Fire Factor is partnering again with the New Student’s Program to offer you some safety information after you have dinner.  They will have your wristbands for the Orientation on Aug 25th.  We will have some hands-on activities for you to participate in regarding fire, pedestrian, bus and bicycle safety.  You will learn how to live with a fire sprinkler head as your roommate.  You’ll also get to learn and practice operating a fire extinguisher on live fire.  UI Police will assist with signups for SafeWalks & SafeRides.

You’ll find us in two locations this year, between 5 p.m.-9 p.m., so please come to the one closest to your Residence Hall:

  1.  Ikenberry Housing Quad 
  2. On Gregory Drive @ Donner (in front of CERCE and the campus fire station)
