Fire Safety For College Students

College Preparedness
Checklist Note

In the FEMA Daily Digest
Bulletin of August 23, a
section is devoted to
preparing college students
for emergencies while away
and at college. The article
tells parents that “…being
prepared will help your
college student remain safe
and calmly deal with
emergency situations.”
Further, FEMA cites “Having
a disaster readiness kit is
one of the best ways to
stay prepared.

This can be as simple as
a backpack containing
items like: a flashlight, a
small radio, extra batteries,
a solar powered or
hand-cranked cell phone
charger, energy bars, water
and first aid supplies.

The Red Cross has
ready-made kits available
that can be ordered.
