Fire forum in Indianapolis
The Center for Campus Fire Safety is inviting all college stakeholders responsible for their institution's fire protection programs to attend the Campus Fire Forum 2010 this fall. It's scheduled for Nov. 2-4 at the Hyatt Regency in Indianapolis. It includes educational sessions and workshops by leading fire safety and industry leaders, technology exhibits, networking opportunities and a "Town Meeting," an open mic session sharing of group ideas. Campus Fire Forum bills itself as the only national conference that focuses exclusively on campus fire safety issues. It offers the opportunity to learn from experts and interact with campus fire safety professionals. Attendees will gain new ideas and proven techniques to protect their campus communities. The forum will discuss, compare and celebrate achievements and improvements in campus and fire safety and showcase advancements in products. The keynote speaker will be Robin Gaby Fisher, a news feature writer for The Star-Ledger in Newark, N.J. Her series "After the Fire," about two students who were critically burned in the Seton Hall dormitory fire, was a finalist for the 2001 Pulitzer Prize in feature writing.
