A new DVD with a life-saving fire safety message for students is igniting interest across Wales.
Produced by Swansea University and the All-Wales Fire and Rescue Service Education group, the DVD shows the devastating consequences of fire on student accommodation.
It was felt that youngsters do not fully appreciate the issue of fire safety and that a hard-hitting would help in this regard.
Copies were sent to universities across Wales, but it has proved such a sure-fire hit that landlord, housing associations and hospitals are also using it.
Local government and communities minister Carl Sargeant said: “It will be an important tool in educating our young people about the dangers that can not only destroy property and their university work, but more importantly can lead to injuries and even loss of life.”
