DC Fire & Emergency Medical Services Wants To Help You Too

The DC Fire & Emergency Medical Services Department is partnering with DCRA to reach out to college students who live off-campus. DC Fire & EMS has issued a new bulletin to help students protect themselves.

For the full list of tips for those living off-campus, click here.

One of the key ways you can make your rental unit safer is to ensure there are smoke alarms in all sleeping areas and hallways, stairwells etc. Test the alarm regularly to make sure it is working. If the dwelling does not have a smoke alarm, contact the Office of the Fire Marshal at 202-727-1600 to report no smoke alarm or any fire code violation.

Or you can request to have smoke alarms installed at no charge by submitting an online form.
