For many college students, the opportunity to study abroad is one of the greatest undertakings in their life. Students and advisors spend months preparing for new lifestyles and unfamiliar dangers. However, one threat that is often overlooked is the risk of fires in countries where smoke detectors and fire escapes are not ubiquitous.
In April 2011, a residential fire in Paris took the lives of four exchange students and seriously injured dozens more. Those students could have been spared with the presence of affordable, accessible equipment such as a smoke alarm and a portable fire escape ladder. Today, JUSTICE vows to share awareness and equipment with every student studying abroad so they can stay safe during their great adventure!
