Students + Parents

Welcome Students + Parents!

Congratulations on your decision to participate in a study abroad experience! You will experience many new challenges throughout your journey, and fire safety could be one of them. 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 you 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:

Expect

Inspect

  • Examine your living quarters using the Residential Checklist
  • Follow up with your landlord or supervisor regarding outstanding checklist items.
  • Encourage your classmates to also inspect their homes.
  • Identify two exits from any room you're in, wherever you visit.
  • Avoid over-crowded areas and speak up if you're concerned.

Protect

  • Get the fire safety equipment you need from our Amazon Wishlist (or apply for a scholarship).
  • Know how to use the equipment (check out these videos)
  • Make sure the equipment is accessible and in working order
