Congratulations, Robyn and Christina!
The Quiz, which ran September 1 – 30 in conjunction with Campus Fire Safety Month, targeted students currently enrolled in an institution of higher learning and was created to help raise awareness of cooking fires in on- and off-campus properties. More than 3,300 students took the quiz, which proved a great way to help students recognize unsafe cooking practices and learn appropriate ways to cook meals that will reduce the risk for injury and damage caused by fire. To participate, students answered an online, interactive eight-question quiz then entered their name and school information into a sweepstakes to win one of two $500 AmEx cards.
In addition to the student winners above, NFPA and The Center are also giving a huge shout out to Montclair State University’s Director of Fire Safety, Robert Ferrara. Nearly 950 Montclair students took the quiz, and Mr. Ferrara’s outstanding efforts to promote the campaign and raise the level of fire safety awareness on campus is truly inspiring. To thank Mr. Ferrara for all of his hard work, our partner, Domino’s, is sponsoring a free pizza party for him and 50 of his closest friends! Thanks Montclair State University and Mr. Ferrara for being a great champion of campus fire safety!
Thanks to all the students and campus safety professionals across the country for making our Campus Fire Safety Quiz such a success! And remember, fire safety is more than just a month of activities and events.
