Inaugural Public Safety Fair
Drexel Department of Public Safety held its inaugural Safety Fair on September 29, 2010 at 33rd and Arch Streets to raise awareness about the many services available to students on and off campus. Nearly 300 hundred students visited the safety exhibits and participated in the safety demonstrations, asked questions, and signed up for some very worthwhile programs, such as bicycle registrations.
Safety Fait Highlights:
- Over 75 students signed pledges for the CAA Blood Challenge
- Several students volunteered to be peer mentors in our area high schools
- More than 50 students learned how to properly use a fire extinguisher via an electronic simulator
- Over two dozen bicycles were registered with Public Safety
- The Counseling Center presented literature on Alcohol Awareness and hosted an exhibit involving “beer goggles” which required students wearing the goggles to walk straight lines and catch balls
simulating the negative effects of alcohol on performance.
- The new Medical Emergency Response Team (MERT) recruited five new members and about 20 students expressed interest in joining the team.
