by admin on October 26, 2010

Dear friends and safety advocates,

Live Safe Foundation has produced a thoughtful and much-needed analysis of the fire-safety risks faced by universities, and how to systematically minimize those risks and the related liability through preparedness and education. This free white paper is a valuable tool for college administrators responsible for implementing and managing fire-safety programs.

Download this Live Safe Foundation Whitepaper and learn:

· The nature of university liability for student housing fires

· Universities’ “duties” regarding fire safety

· Four specific actions to reduce fire-related liability

· Six ways colleges benefit from training students in fire safety

We look forward to circulating more of Live Safe’s useful white papers in the months ahead, and hope you will benefit by having access to this material. Please see the message from Live Safe reprinted below.

The Live Safe Foundation is proud to announce the launch of the “LS White Paper Campaign” an ongoing series of reports on institutional risk and specific actions to reduce fire risks and liability. Our newly released white paper “College and University Risk of Legal Liability Associated with Student Housing Fires” is attached for your further distribution. The Live Safe Foundation is grateful for NIFAST’s assistance in circulating this important report on our behalf.

Our team of subject-matter experts has gone to great lengths in producing this material. The white paper specifically explores the risk of liability associated with student housing fires, and university “duties” regarding fire safety; it explains four specific actions to reduce university fire-related liability and concludes with six ways colleges benefit from training students in fire safety.

Through the white paper campaign, Live Safe will spearhead efforts to improve institutional fire-safety policy, act as a conduit for policy development, and strive to provide institutions with access to liability-and-policy-related information and guidance. Our objective is to ensure the implementation of useful, effective (risk-reducing) fire-safety policy on a broad basis.

I hope you enjoy this thought-provoking report. We see it as an important part of the ongoing conversation about how to accomplish real fire safety at America ’s Universities and Colleges.

Jill Marcinick, Board Chair
