University of North Dakota Volume #13, Issue #10 In the neighborhood Fire Prevention Week is October 6 thru October 12, Prepare and Pracitice your Fire Escape Plan O C T O B E R In the event of a fire, remember that every second counts, so you and your family must always be prepared. Escape plans help you get out of your home quickly. In less than 30 seconds, a small flame can get completely out of control and turn into a major fire. It only takes minutes for a house to fill with thick black smoke and become engulfed in flames. Prepare and practice your fire escape plan twice a year with everyone in your household, including children and people with disabilities. It's also a good idea to practice your plan with overnight guests. Some tips to consider when preparing your escape plan include: Draw a map of each level of your home and show all doors and windows. Find two ways to get out of each room. Make sure all doors and windows that lead outside open easily. Only purchase collapsible escape ladders evaluated by a recognized testing laboratory. Use the ladder only in a real emergency. Teach children how to escape on their own in case you cannot help them. Have a plan for everyone in your home who has a disability. Practice your fire escape plan at night and during the daytime. Additional Fire tips to know: When a fire occurs, get out fast: you may only have seconds to escape safely. Take the safest exit route, but if you must escape through smoke, remember to crawl low, under the smoke and keep your mouth covered. The smoke contains toxic gases, which can disorient you or, at worst, overcome you. Never Open Doors that are Hot to the Touch. When you come to a closed door, feel the doorknob and door to make sure that fire is not on the other side. If either is hot, leave the door closed and use your secondary escape route. If the door feels cool, open it slowly. Be ready to shut it quickly if heavy smoke or fire is present. If you can't get out, close the door and cover vents and cracks around doors to keep the smoke out. Call or your local emergency number. Say where you are and signal for help at the window with a light-colored cloth or a flashlight. Designate a Meeting Place Outside and Take Attendance Designate a meeting location a safe distance in front of your home. For example, meet under a specific tree or at the end of the driveway or front sidewalk to make sure everyone has gotten out safely and no one will be hurt looking for someone who is already safe. Make sure everyone in your home knows how to call or your local emergency number and that your house number can be seen day or night from the street. Once Out, Stay Out Remember to escape first and then notify the fire department using the system or proper local emergency number in your area. Never go back into a burning building for any reason. Teach children not to hide from firefighters. If someone is missing, or pets are trapped inside your home, tell the firefighters right away. They are equipped to perform rescues safely. Lots of immediate opportunities to attend FREE training at the National Fire Academy.

UND ACC Newsletter October 2013 Adjustment to new situations is something everyone experiences. Sometimes when there are a number of things happening at once, we have difficulty managing the stress that comes along with these life events. This can be true even if they are considered positive events, such as a new living situation, job or relationship. The Holmes-Rahe Stress Scale was designed to rate the stress level of life events and can be used as a way to recognize how changes generally impact us. High academic demands, financial stress, loss of a loved one, or family issues are all common stressors for college students and it can be difficult to concentrate when we feel like there is too much going on. In these situations, we may end up feeling stressed and overwhelmed. When we feel unable to cope with life events, our mood is sad, anxious or irritable more than usual, or we experience more intense reactions than we would normally have, these can all be signs of adjustment difficulties. Problems with sleep or changes in weight or appetite are also signals that you may need some help navigating these new situations or developing new coping strategies. Other signs that you may benefit from talking with a counselor include coping by using more alcohol or other substances than usual. Thinking about or engaging in behaviors that might potentially be harmful to yourself or someone else are other clear symptoms of adjustment difficulties or issues that usually require assistance from someone skilled in helping with more complicated life issues. If you are experiencing some of the situations described above and you would like to speak to someone about your concerns, please contact the UND at The satellite office is located in the Apartment Community Center and open during the academic year while classes are in session. You can make an appointment to be seen by one of the counselors there between 4pm. and 8pm on Wednesdays this semester. The main office located at 200 McCannel Hall is open from 8am-4:30pm throughout the calendar year. Please contact the office at for an appointment or walk-in during business hours. Police Beat Door-to-door sales are prohibited on campus unless the seller has Transient Merchants licenses from both the State of North Dakota and the city of Grand Forks and permission from the University Administration to sell door-to-door on campus. Should you be approached by a door-to-door salesperson on campus please ask them to show their Transient Merchants Licenses and letter from the University as proof that they are allowed to be on campus selling. If they cannot or will not show you their licenses and letter please do not purchase the product they are selling and feel free to contact the University Police to let us know that there are salespeople on campus who may not be authorized to be on campus. In recent years police around the nation, including here in North Dakota, have received numerous complaints about fraudulent door-to-door sales being conducted by people especially for magazine subscriptions. To protect citizens in North Dakota and the city of Grand Forks from these fraudulent sales the North Dakota Attorney General and the city of Grand Forks have required sellers to obtain a Transient Merchants licenses. Furthermore, the University of North Dakota does not want unwanted sellers harassing residents in the university housing areas so permission from the University Administration is required of anyone that wants to sell on campus. For further information you may contact the University Police at or you may check the North Dakota Attorney General s website at or you may call the North Dakota Attorney General s Consumer Fraud Division at Kidz Corner!
