Since 2000, there have been more than 85 fatal fires at American colleges and universities. Other nonfatal, but nonetheless dangerous, fire-related injuries are suffered by students and staff at institutions of higher education each year.
We believe that with enough knowledge, planning, and precaution, fire-related death and injury can be prevented. So, under funding from a Department of Homeland Security Fire Prevention and Safety Grant, we created The Alarming Truth.
The Alarming Truth is a short film on the importance of fire prevention and safety for college students, especially those living off campus. As part of this initiative, we also collected and created an assortment of fire prevention resources, available at the official Alarming Truth website.
