An assessment of international student awareness in fire safety issues with respect to their housing in Australia was performed by this project, which was commissioned by the Australasian Fire and Emergency Services Authorities Council. As a basis to characterize this situation, pieces of fire safety legislation, education materials, and techniques for multicultural pedagogy were gathered and analyzed. A survey was administered to collect data from a representative population of students throughout Australia. Lapses in fire safety knowledge and compliance made apparent through the research were addressed in FireAway, an education plan, and legislative recommendations.
