College students housing fire safety rights

SPRINKLERS SAVE LIVES! They are an ACTIVE safety device, much like airbags are for cars. We have the technology and students deserve to be safe off campus, a well as on campus.   

3 Marist College students have been killed 

there have been 9 campus fires in these past 2 months alone

Who can argue with saving our children with technology that has been around for decades.  I wish you had done it before Kerry Rose, Eva, and Kevin were killed.

Does your childs on and off campus house have fire sprinklers?

I want all college Dorms to be retrofitted, Off campus housing to be certified safe and the state fire code to be followed .  FEMA recommendations of fire sprinklers should be followed as well.
