What is CFSM?

What is Campus Fire Safety Month?

It is a nationwide effort to raise fire and life safety awareness on campus. September is designated as“Campus Fire Safety Month.”
August and September are typically the worst time of year for fatal campus-related housing fires. Unfortunately, some students do not realize how quickly a fire can occur, and most have not received fire safety education since elementary school.

We hope through Campus Fire Safety Month that students will realize they are not invincible, that fires do happen in campus-related settings and that students should take steps to protect themselves no matter where they live.”

Student Contest


Thursday, September 1 – Friday, September 30

September is Campus Fire Safety Month and this year the National Fire Protection Association(NFPA), The Center for Campus Fire Safety (The Center) and Domino’s are hosting our second annual campus fire safety campaign. 

The Campus Fire Safety Month Quiz & Sweepstakes helps to raise awareness among college-aged students who live in on-and off-campus housing about the dangers of cooking fires.  Students have access to kitchens and make meals using stoves, ovens or other heating appliances have the opportunity, through an interactive quiz, to recognize unsafe practices and learn appropriate ways to cook meals that will reduce the risk for injury and damage caused by fire.
