Dorm Burn Video
The Fredericton Fire Department, University of New Brunswick, St. Thomas University and the New Brunswick Community College joined forces for a very important fire safety educational activity. Fire is a serious concern for the campus community, as well as the greater Fredericton Community, and homes are where citizens and students are most vulnerable. In fact, more than 80 percent of all fire deaths occur at home. To help students and residents understand how dangerous home fires are and to inform them of the steps they can take to stay safer, this dramatic side-by-side fire and sprinkler burn demonstration took place at the Fredericton Campus of the University of New Brunswick.
