Being at University - Student Fire Safety

Presented by Former University Rector Lorraine Kelly

The purpose of this short film is to reduce the risk from fires to students, and potentially save lives; it could be your life!

The film highlights the dangers posed from cooking, one of the most common causes of fires, as well as hazards including cigarettes, candles, tea lights and heaters. Former and current students from the University’s School of Television and Imaging produced the short film using live fire footage. It was made possible by the active assistance of Tayside Fire Brigade, Ambulance Service and Dundee City Council.

Note: University of Dundee Students can obtain a copy of the DVD from Safety Services, 3 Cross Row.
