About the flashpoint college fire safety program (short demo)

  1. 1. Welcome to FLASHPOINT College Housing Fire Safety Program Demo
  2. 2. What Is NIFAST? NIFAST (The National Institute of Fire and Safety Training) is a company built by fire safety professionals along with providers of commercial life and fire safety services that have decades of fire safety experience. NIFAST was developed to fill the void between existing standards, regulations and codes to reduce the loss of life. Being a for profit company allows us to take business practices into an environment that has been use to non-profit ways of delivering a message without looking for results through a business model. Our Mission The NIFAST mission is to broadly increase fire safety awareness, reduce the risk and number of fires, and thereby reduce loss of life, injury, and property damage through education. We hope to advance this mission through education, training, inspections, and standards development.
  3. 3. For the first time, NIFAST presents a simple, common sense approach that teaches students in-depth fire and burn safety through an easy-to-use, self-paced online course and test called the NIFAST FLASHPOINT College Program. NIFAST: Our Call for Action!
  4. 4. What is the NIFAST FLASHPOINT Program? The FLASHPOINT program is a comprehensive course available on-line to educate students on: FLASHPOINT is designed to help educate students to live fire safe on their own and fill in the gaps of missing information from the fire safety education they received in their youth. Universities that choose to offer the NIFAST FLASHPOINT program demonstrate their commitment to student safety on their campus! ■ How to prevent fires and escape, if one should ever occur ■ Burn safety ■ Fire safety equipment
  5. 5. According to the US Fire Administration’s report on University Housing Fires, from 2005 to 2007: At NIFAST we think these numbers are preventable through knowledge and preparation to first prevent a fire and second to survive the fire if one should occur. ■ An estimated 3,800 university housing fires occurred annually in the United States. ■ An average of 5 students were killed and 50 students injured in university housing fires each year. ■ Annually university housing fires caused an average of $26 million dollars in property damage. Why is Fire Safety Training Needed Now?
