How might we engage and educate young adults on fire safety?

Term: Spring 2021
Department: IDEA
Course: IDES 244 (Design Studio)
Instructor: Tom Duguid
Staff contact: Assistant Chief Dave Owens, Rebecca Hathaway (Fire Department)

Students will develop and design a campaign that engages and educates young adults (~16-25) about fire safety. Students will research and select innovative methods and platforms for delivery based on the platforms currently available to the Fire Department as well as additional “blue skies” strategies that go beyond current resources.
