Fire Safety at Host: How to stay safe in your new home
The new academic year has begun, you’re settling into your new home and you’re excited about the year ahead. So, with so much going on, we understand that fire safety probably isn’t top of your checklist right now.
However, there’s nothing more important than your safety and at Host, we take fire safety very seriously. Fires can develop very quickly – it usually takes 3 to 6 minutes to have a fully developed fire. So, it’s important for you to take a moment to understand fire safety at your student accommodation.
The short video below highlights how you can help prevent a fire and what you should do if there is a fire at your accommodation.

This year, Chinese New Year is on Saturday 10th February and it is the year of the Dragon Zodiac. The Chinese New Year date changes every year, but is always held between January 21st and February 20th, as the Chinese year follows the lunar calendar. The holiday falls on the second new moon after the winter solstice, (the winter solstice, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun), on December 21st.
