The 2017 Campus Fire Safety Right to Know report for the University of Massachusetts Amherst is available on-line.

Staff from EH&S Fire Prevention Services recently conducted training for University Health Services Staff as part of their Staff Days training. As another academic year begins EH&S staff provide training in many topics including fire safety and fire extinguisher use, laboratory safety, biological safety, radiological safety, contractor safety and other topics to hundreds of students, staff and faculty.
Some of this specialty training given by EH&S Fire Safety staff was also provided for UMass Amherst and Mt Ida and Hampshire College Resident Advisors in preparation for the semester's opening.

EH&S staff representing Campus Safety and Fire Prevention, Emergency Management, and UMass Emergency Medical Services were on hand enjoying U-Fest with First Year Students. Hundreds of students stopped by to take their chance at winning prizes (including a GREAT T-Shirt), putting out fires, and learning about becoming an EMT.
Mother Nature was supportive too with great weather and a lot of smiles and laughs.
