09/05/10 337 W - + 7 - 7 Campus Fire Safety Community Service Project Launches in Chapel Hill on Thursday, Sep. 9

North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue is scheduled to join the Michael H. Minger Foundation, North Carolina family members of students who have been killed in campus fires, students, university and fire officials in Chapel Hill on Thursday morning to kickoff a national campus fire safety community service project.. The location is the Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity House at 108 West Cameron Avenue, site of the fire that killed five students and injured three on Mother's Day in 1996.

Students from North Carolina colleges and universities will partner with local fire departments, and go into their communities and help with projects to improve fire safety for senior citizens, children, low-income residents, and students. The event coincides with National Campus Fire Safety Month. Read more from this social media release, which my automatic Google alert on "Raleigh Fire" found. Guess we'll see coverage in the news this week.
