Residential Safety Patrol (RSP) provides many students on campus with employment. However, considering its operations were created back in 1974, how effective and efficient can they be? A majority of the program’s training consists of memorizing numerical codes and regurgitating archaic safety protocol methods. RSP should update their training manual and techniques to keep up with the current times and current safety issues. What particularly concerns me is that with such a large number of students working for the organization at such late hours, the organization does not take better measures to ensure their safety post-shift.
Live burn demonstrations and hands-on safety equipment lessons were both part of the Department of Environmental Health and Safety and Campus Residences’ effort to raise awareness for National College Fire Prevention Month on campus.
