MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia University will participate with two other universities in a national campus fire safety community project this fall.
Starting in October, students and local firefighters will visit homes in Morgantown to test and install smoke alarms and special devices for the deaf or hard of hearing. They'll be visiting at-risk households, including the elderly, people with disabilities, low-income residents and off-campus student housing.
The project is sponsored by a grant from the Michael H. Minger Foundation. Other campuses participating in the program are Kentucky and Mississippi.
The WVU students will partner with the Morgantown Fire Department.
