Fire Prevention Week starts Sunday Oct. 3

Fire safety is a critical consideration in our day to day lives whether working, studying or in a household environment.

In just a matter of seconds and with the right conditions, a fire can ignite and spread quickly throughout a building.

Please join the McMaster University community in recognizing Fire Prevention Week and always make sure to do your part by familiarizing yourself with building fire exits, fire extinguishers and fire pull stations.

Please also review the McMaster University Guidelines for Building Evacuations During COVID-19.
