It’s snack time on campus somewhere! And somewhere across America in a campus residence, a student has just popped open their microwave oven to feed a craving. They have also just rolled the dice again on having an on campus false alarm activation or worse, a cooking fire. According to the National Protection Fire Association (NFPA) microwave ovens are, on average, involved in more than 7,000 home structure fires every year, that’s more than 19 fires every day. Perhaps surprisingly, microwaves are also responsible for more emergency room injury visits than any other cooking device. More surprising however, is the magnitude of nuisance alarms from microwave ovens.
Located in Potsdam, New York, Clarkson University has, according to their website, been “bridging discovery, and engineering innovation with enterprise since 1986.” So, after experiencing a cooking fire in one of their on-campus apartments, it’s not surprising that Clarkson University choose SmartBurner.
