Welcome

Help Save a Life, Get on the Truck

During September, students across the nation will be encouraged to do fire safety community service projects with their fire departments – a way to give back to their communities during National Campus Fire Safety Month. These students will be working alongside their fire departments and doing projects such as installing smoke alarms and fire safety education for those at the highest risk from fire which includes senior citizens, the young and low-income, the disabled and college students.

UNC Chapel Hill, UNC Charlotte and UNC Greensboro will be joining with the fire departments in their host communities in this unique program. By partnering together, the fire departments will have a whole new set of fire prevention resources to draw on and the students will have the opportunity to learn about fire safety by helping those in need, truly a win-win situation. This program will take place from September 10 to 24, spanning 9/11. It will be a wonderful opportunity for the students to honor the lives of those who died in the tragic events of that day.

More events to be posted this week!
