Gov. Scott: Proclaim September Campus Fire Safety Month

Formally proclaim September Campus Fire Safety Month in the state of Florida.

Why is this important?

This academic year, at least 6 college students affiliated with American universities, including Jasmine Jahanshahi, have lost their lives in fires. Join JUSTICE and Campus Firewatch in requesting that Rick Scott proclaim September as Campus Fire Safety Month, in order to "raise awareness and encourage schools to provide fire prevention and safety education". Additionally, we hope with this proclamation to encourage schools to publish annual fire safety reports, in accordance with the Higher Campus Fire Safety Right-to-Know Act of 2008.


Reasons for signing

  • I do not know if you have children in college, but think of those parents whose children do. Think of the lawsuits those parents could file against the STATE if there is no policy to prevent college campus fires. Or you could pay off those lawsuits yourself.
  • I fully agree. Campus safety is a priority along side of education itself. There is no need to be losing life because of a lack of fire safety or campus security.
  • As an architect, I wholeheartedly support this effort.
