Posted in: Facilities Updates, Fire Safety Updates

Fire Safety event on March 30, 2023, with two Seton Hall fire survivors.
Learn about campus fire safety from fire survivors Alvaro and Shawn.

January 19, 2000. Seton Hall University.
Three freshmen students killed in a dorm fire. Fifty-eight others injured.
Two severely burned roommates share their story.

Shawn Simons & Alvaro Llanos share their story of how they survived after their freshmen residence hall was set on fire in a fraternity prank gone wrong. Their story is one of perseverance, hope, inspiration, courage, and friendship.

Not only will you learn fire safety tips, they also aim to inspire and motivate their audience to persevere over life’s many obstacles by drawing strength, knowledge and motivation from those around you. With these tools, they prove that there is life “After the Fire.”

The presentation includes a viewing of their powerful documentary, a reading from their New York Times Best-Selling book, and a Q&A discussion.  Join us on March 30, 2023, at 7 p.m., on the 7th Floor of University Hall.

This is NOT your average fire safety presentation!

This event is sponsored by the Montclair State University Office of Fire Safety in conjunction with the Office of Residence Life, University Facilities, Greek Life, the Delta Chi Fraternity, and the Student Government Association.
