9-1-1 Simulator

9-1-1 Simulator  

The 9-1-1 Simulator is an educational tool that teaches children how, when and why to dial 9-1-1 in case of an emergency. Participants learn through demonstration and practice by using the simulator to call 9-1-1. It effectively teaches children what they need to know and what to do in case of an emergency. The interactive simulator is designed to aid an instructor with a minimal background and education in the emergency reporting field to conduct a 9-1-1-safety session correctly and effectively. More importantly, the 9-1-1 simulator enhances instruction by simulating a realistic 9-1-1 call.

Campus Fire Safety - "After the Fire" Movie

On January 19, 2000, a fire raged through a Seton Hall dormitory, killing three students and injuring 58 others. Among the victims were Shawn Simons and Alvaro Llanos, roommates from poor neighborhoods who had made their families proud by getting into college.

After the Fire is the story of Shawn and Alvaro's fight to recover from the worst damage St. Barnabas Hospital's burn unit had ever seen and the elaborate conspiracy to obscure the truth in the search for the arsonists.

Fire-Resistant Plant Display

Fire-Resistant Plant Display  

The Fire-Resistant Plant Display is an education tabletop display. The display illustrates how home owners can help protect their home and property from the hazards of wildland fires by landscaping with fire-resistant plants and trees. The display encourages homeowners to use fire resistant plants and to carefully place trees to provide green barriers and block the intense heat of approaching fires. Most deciduous trees and shrubs are fire-resistant. However, fire-resistant does not mean fire proof, particularly if they are not maintained in a healthy condition.
