UMass Fire Safety staff traveled to Hampshire College to assist with the training of Hampshire College staff members and resident assistants in various aspects of fire safety, prior to the beginning of their academic year. Training included usage of fire extinguishers on a live fire training prop. UMass Fire Safety personnel provide fire safety and fire extinguisher training to hundreds of UMass students, staff and faculty throughout the year. Their partnerships with Amherst and Hadley Fire Departments and with other institutions, like Hampshire College, extend this life saving education beyond the campus boundaries.
