Welcome Educators + Advisors!
You spend hours every semester preparing your study abroad students for their overseas adventures, paying special attention to potential hazards along the way. But does your pre-departure orientation include fire prevention training? Outside the United States, many urban and rural areas do not have enforced fire safety regulations and building codes. It is highly likely that any building your students enter overseas does not have smoke alarms, fire escapes, sprinklers, and exit signs. The Jasmine Jahanshahi Fire Safety Foundation is responding to this threat by providing pre-departure training and equipment for students traveling abroad. Here's how it works:
- Share the Fire Safety Guide and print copies for your students.
- Print and share Preparedness Posters in pre-departure orientation material
- Teach students to respond to specific fire-related scenarios with the Planning Guide.
- Do your own research about fire codes in the area where your students stay.
- Tell your colleagues about us!
- Ensure that your program has secured protocol for fire safety inspections and disaster response.
- Encourage students to examine their living quarters using the Residential Checklist
- Follow up with building managers regarding outstanding checklist items.
- Encourage your colleagues overseas to also inspect their homes.
- Encourage students to get the fire safety equipment they need from our Amazon Wishlist.
- Remind students with financial concerns to apply for a scholarship for their equipment.
- Train students to use the equipment (check out these videos)
- Remind students to make sure the equipment is accessible and in working order
