The Fire Warden Program at PSU aims to have knowledgeable volunteers in key locations around campus to facilitate safe and effective evacuations in case of campus or building emergencies.
These volunteers will be trained in the following:
- Basic fire safety systems of their respective buildings
- Systematically clear their floor/department/building in a safe and efficient manner
- Identification of specific situations that arise during evacuations, including injured and physically disabled personnel
- Basic fire prevention to help keep their buildings free from fire code violations. See: Fire Prevention for Everyone for tips and Fire Safety & You for emergency planning.
The Fire Wardens will receive basic training and annual refresher training thereafter.
