MSU Fire and Emergency Services Club 

In Spring of 2013, FESHE students at MSU Denver organized Logothe club, and their logo, that has been approved by the university and the group has already made a significant impact on the metropolitan Denver community.  Students in the Community Risk Reduction course organized an activity to provide a hands-on learning experience for residents of two apartment buildings. Most of the residents were refugees and few spoke English. The students, with faculty supervision, used fake blood to demonstrate how to stop bleeding and used mannequins to demonstrate CPR and then let the participants practice the techniques.  In the basement of one of the buildings, students donned full firefighter turnout gear so that the residents could see what a firefighter looks and sounds like under fire conditions. The residents (adults and children) were taught to "Get Low and Go" and crawled on the floor through a door and exited the building. Finally, small aluminum pans containing diesel fuel were set on fire. Students demonstrated the correct use of a fire extinguisher and the residents were able to have the opportunity to use a fire extinguisher to put out an actual fire.

Please reach out to Dr. Brian Bagwell or Kevin Hammons if you are interested in joining this club.
