The Fire Science Club was created after the Fire Science Department was established in 1972. Our mission is to provide fire safety education to students, and to advance knowledge, involvement and camaraderie in the Fire Science Community.
Our most popular events of the year include the Burn Box, Docudrama, and Annual Banquet. This year’s Burn Box will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 10, and we will be setting two replica dorm rooms on fire to demonstrate the protection provided by automatic sprinkler systems. Fire suppression provided by Allingtown Fire District.
The Docudrama will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 16, and we will be demonstrating, in real time, the Fire, EMS and Police department response to a DUI accident. Our banquet will be held in the spring of 2013 and is open to the entire student body to celebrate a successful year at UNH. We also hold BBQs periodically throughout the year, and networking and training opportunities to our members.
For more information, you can email the club at FSC@newhaven.edu. You can also find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/UNHFireScienceClub or on Twitter at www.twitter.com/UNHFireScience. Club meetings this fall are on Mondays at 7 p.m. in the German Club, unless otherwise announced. Opportunities for involvement in the club range from our various committee memberships and leadership opportunities, to the participation and attendance of our events, socials and training opportunities.Tweet
