Fire Safety

The NYS Office of Fire Prevention and Control, with the cooperation of Hempstead Fire Department, simulated a residence hall fire to teach new and returning students fire safety for their rooms. The NYS Office of Fire Prevention and Control teamed up with Hofstra administrators to create a simulated residence hall room that was overtaken by fire within three minutes. As flames consumed the room, Deputy Chief Guy Swartwout explained how quickly a fire can spread in relation to how fast the fire department could arrive on campus. The students also learned about flammable materials such as tapestries and window treatments that can fuel a fire. Hofstra forbids the use of those materials in residence halls.
