Summer Newsletter 2012: Environmental Health and Safety Office

In October 2010, Bates and the Lewiston Fire Department held a Fire Safety Day that may have been an eye-opener in revealing the value of Bates safety polices.

The highlight was a simulated dorm room fire that graphically illustrated the hazards posed by candles, unauthorized cooking appliances, clutter and overflowing trash containers.

If there’s a fire, the speed at which smoke and flames develop could make it difficult to escape your residence. So never be complacent when the fire or smoke detectors start sounding.

See a dramatic video of the Big Blaze.

We’re looking forward to your return in September, and remember A SAFE Batesie is a HAPPY Batesie.
