LogoJoin Dormitory Fire Marshalls and Greek Leaders for a morning of intense fire safety education.

  • Learn to use fire extinguishers.
  • Witness live fire in sprinkler protected and un-protected “dorm rooms”.
  • Escape from a smoke filled building.
  • Learn to survive your next night out!

Experience all this and more at the 19th Fire Factor Academy, September 27, at Illinois Fire Service Institute.

The Office of the State Fire Marshall will issue a proclamation declaring September “Campus Fire Safety Month”, and will present the “Look Up — Pay It Forward” campaign. You’ll have an opportunity, after the Academy, to join them in distributing smoke detectors to off-campus housing.

SideBySideBurn Come visit Fire Factor at Engineering Open House, March 14, at the center of the Bardeen Quad. Look for our booth near the Society of Women Engineers’ side-by-side dorm room fire demonstration. We’ll have posters, giveaways for your residence fire safety activities, and information about how to comply with ODOS Greek Housing requirements. Since there will be no regular academy this Spring, this is your only chance to see the fire demonstration!
Fire demonstrations are at 11:00, 1:00 and 3:00. See you there!
