to conduct fire safety training for students
working in residence halls

CANTON – Canton Fire and Rescue will help Culver-Stockton
College train students who will be working in the C-SC residence halls in fire
safety procedures on August 13.  Some 25
residence hall directors and community assistants will be taught how to prevent
fires, use a fire extinguisher, and evacuate a smoke-filled
room.

Mike Bringer, C-SC director of campus safety, said the
Fire Academy is a “train-the-trainer” program designed to enable residence hall
and campus safety staff to teach other student residents about fire hazards as
well as teach them about the importance of evacuation in case of a fire alarm.
“Bottom line is that they need to understand that fire is fast,” he added.
“Culver-Stockton is committed to providing our students with the training that
makes our campus a safe home during their college years and that provides
students with information and skills that will be useful throughout their
lives.”

The Fire Academy also will focus on understanding the
college’s emergency response process and the fire suppression sprinkler and
alarm systems that are used in all C-SC residence
halls.
