UC Study Abroad Program is now fire safety conscious!

The University of California Education Abroad Program (UCEAP) has recently made several great improvements to its website and to is orientation materials to help students studying abroad stay safe.

In their parent's guide, they have added a page about fire safety abroad and a link to our website!

In the student's guide to studying abroad, they've added a two-page section about fire safety, which includes our link as well.

Ines DeRomana, of UCEAP's Health, Safety, and Emergency Response deparment, made a fire safety flier with the help of the UC Santa Barbara Fire Marshall, which is distributed to students at orientations.

She is also in the process of creating a fire safety risk assessment form, powerpoint slides to show at orientations, and wallet-sized hand outs for students with emergency numbers and essential safety information.

Thank you so much to Ines DeRomana and to UC EAP for doing this important work! The goal of our foundation is to make this happen, and we are truly grateful.

  4. It is really great to hear that the UCEAP's Health, Safety, and Emergency Response department is bringing a lot of change in the field of fire risk assessment, and also creation of fire risk assessment form is essential. For every commercial building fire risk assessment is an essential part in preventing fire hazards.
