Fitting well with this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme “Have Two Ways Out,” the Philadelphia Fire Department, the Michael H. Minger Foundation, and Campus Firewatch conducted a fire drill among local Philadelphia universities the evening of October 18. The universities practiced their respective escape plans by evacuating pre-selected dormitories. The campus of Drexel University served as host for the Philadelphia Fire Department’s mock firefighting operations during a campus fire.
The Michael H. Minger Foundation is producing a documentary entitled “9 Fires” highlighting the devastating impact of nine campus fires in 2012.
Below are photos from the firefighting event at Drexel University.
