Article critique unit 8 article.pdf Unit VIII Article CritiqueThe purpose of this assignment is to investigate a professional journal in the field of fire prevention that interests you. The objective of your critique is to find an article and compare the information in the article to what you have been learning in class. Critique the article in terms of how the information within the article supports or disproves material that you have learned in this course. Please include the following topics in your critique of the selected article: a brief introduction and overview of the article, a description of how the article either supports or disproves material in the course, your point of view, and a summarization of your thoughts and suggestions in support of your opinion.The selected article should not be more than four years old. You are encouraged to utilize the Research Databases found in the CSU Online Library located in the Course Menu. These databases will allow you to quickly search through thousands of journal articles. Students can access this information, as well as other CSU Online Library resources by selecting the My Library button located in the Course Menu.The completed assignment should be no more than two pages in length, and should include the article link in the reference. CSU requires that students use the APA format in writing course papers; therefore, the APA rules for formatting, quoting, paraphrasing, citing, and listing of sources must be followed.Information about accessing the Blackboard Grading Rubric for this assignment is provided below.©ISTOCKPHOTO.COM/DAN BRANDENBURG
People Have False Sense of Security
About Escaping a Fire in Their Home
An American Red Cross survey found that most people believe they have up to
10 minutes to safely get away from a home fire, when in fact they may have as few
as 2 minutes to escape before the situation turns deadly.
People have other misconceptions about home fires, too, the survey shows.
While 41% are confident they can get out of a burning home in less than 2 minutes and 64% of parents surveyed believe their children would know what to do if
a fire occurred, only about 10% of families have actually practiced home fire drills,
and only 24% have identified a safe place for the family to meet outside the home.
The survey revealed some unsafe practices as well. More than a third of respondents said they use candles instead of flashlights during a power outage, and 17%
admit to leaving food unattended on the stove.
The survey was part of the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign, which is a multiyear effort aimed at reducing deaths and injuries caused by home fires by 25%.
The group wants people to take two easy steps to help save lives: 1) check existing
smoke alarms and 2) practice fire drills.

Nanotechnology is transforming
the construction industry. Nanomaterials are incredibly small, between
1 and 100 nanometers, about a million times smaller than the length of
an ant. At that size, they are able to
take on new properties.
Adding nanomaterials or making
changes at this tiny size can transform familiar construction materials
into concrete that conducts electricity, glass that cleans itself and
coatings that cut smog. Only now
are people starting to understand
the possible hazards for workers
who handle these materials.
In response, CPWR (www.cpwr
.com) has created the eLCOSH
NANO website (http://nano
.elcosh.org). Affiliated with the
popular electronic Library of Construction Occupational Safety and
Health (eLCOSH), visitors can learn
more about nanomaterials used in
their trade and access additional
information, including training and
CPWR is pursuing additional research on nanomaterial exposure
risks in the construction industry.
In the meantime, it has created a
pocket-sized hazard alert brochure that presents information
on the possible hazards and how
to reduce potential risks. —BH
