Proclaim September Campus Fire Safety Month in Your State

Formally proclaim September as Campus Fire Safety Month in your home state.

Why is this important?

On April 14, 2011, Jasmine Jahanshahi lost her life in an apartment fire while studying abroad; at least 6 college students affiliated with American universities have perished in fires this academic year. Join J.U.S.T.I.C.E. and Campus Firewatch in requesting that governors across the U.S. proclaim September as Campus Fire Safety Month in his or her home state in order to "raise awareness and encourage schools to provide fire prevention and safety education". If we can inspire university officials to make fire safety a part of the curriculum at freshmen orientations and at study abroad orientations, we can help young adults learn to protect themselves. Please visit for fire safety tips and for more information about J.U.S.T.I.C.E., the foundation we have established in Jasmine's memory.
