A mock dormitory fire was started on the campus of Oakland University (Rochester Hills, MI) on October 21, 2009, to show how quickly fires can spread. The demonstration was an initiative of Oakland University's Environmental Health and Safety Office and conducted under the watchful eye of OU Campus Police and the Auburn Hills Fire Department. As you can see in the video, the fire engulfed the mock dormitory in less than four minutes.
This video is to guide a fire safety educator in delivering fire safety training to students with disabilities. It features students with disabilities telling you, in their own words, how you can help them learn to be fire safe. Learn more at www.mingerfoundation.org.
