March 7th, 2010

Hello and welcome to Columbus, Ohio for our 7th Annual Professional Development Conference and
Expo. As the largest campus fire safety conference event of its kind to date, I am honored to welcome the
250 plus people who have assembled to make this record setting event possible

This conference marks the continuation of further enlightened efforts in the area of Campus Fire Safety,
Security and Risk Management. The composition of training, education, and new technologies has led to
new emerging trends and educational programs to make safe campuses around the world.

January 19th of this year marked the 10th anniversary of the deadly fire at Seton Hall University in which
three students lost their lives to fire in a residence hall. At that time, the United States had a rash of fires
and fire-related deaths of college students. These last 10 years have brought national attention to the ef-
forts, programs, and new laws put into place to allow changes aimed at preventing such tragedies in the
future. We thank you for having the vested interest to see our nation’s future leaders safe from fire as they
go off to college and learn to be our leaders of tomorrow.

I would also like to thank our key corporate partners who help and supports us to make this event possible.
I can hold my head high to say there is no other active organization that can provide you the training we
have assembled, the facilities we have offered and the housing we have provided you for the cost of these
two days! And I am proud to say it has been that way since we organized our first professional develop-
ment program eight years ago.

Enjoy your time in Columbus and remember: Education is the Key to Success!!

Have a great stay,

Randall L. Hormann

Mass Notification
Students, their parents and the general public want to know about the emergency notification procedures that campuses have
in place. Under the Clery Act, campuses are required to provide "timely warning" of various criminal threats. The emergencies
faced by higher education, however, go far beyond those enumerated in the Clery Act and include severe weather, large fires,
class cancellations, bomb threats, and hazardous material contamination incidents, as well as threats from deranged individu-

The interest in this subject is on target for this years conference and expo. Mass Notification has been the campus "buzz-word"
for quite some time now. How does Mass Notification work for the campus environment and the challenges of campuses and
the technology to make these systems work? How loud should your messages be? What will make them intelligible to your
occupants? Where do you put the speakers and how many should you place? What is reasonable and responsible? In theory,
mass notification systems are about people movement and getting the message out in a timely fashion.

These events and others that have unfolded over the last couple of years have caused a great swing in the educational market-
place. New guides, standards and codes are being developed. Many were already in the making but recent events have forced
the industry to step up the pace. With that I would like to report on what these new papers are and where they are coming
from. Many companies will start or have started to approach the universities with their bag of products and calling it “Mass
Notification.” I offer to provide a training session on exactly what Mass Notification is and what NFPA, NEMA and other organi-
zations are doing.

Campus Fire Safety Right-to-Know Act

The Campus Fire Safety Right-to-Know Act (sponsored by Congressman Bill Pascrell and Senator Frank Lautenberg, both of New
Jersey) requires colleges to report fire safety information to the U.S. Department of Education. Many of the core ideals of the
Right-to-Know Act were successfully included in the recently enacted Higher Education Opportunity Act. As a result, academic
institutions will be required to make annual fire safety reports available to the public Many of the core ideals of the Right-to-
Know Act were successfully included in the recently enacted Higher Education Opportunity Act. The Center for Campus Fire
Safety (CCFS) is actively working with the US Department of Education as they develop the regulations that will ultimately guide
colleges and universities through their compliance with Campus Fire Safety Right-to-Know.

Some of the specific reporting details include:

 The number of fires and the cause of each fire
 The number of injuries and deaths related to a fire
 The value of property damage caused by a fire
 Description of the fire protection equipment (alarms/sprinklers) in each on-campus housing unit
 The number of regular mandatory supervised fire drills, policies or rules on regarding fire safety
education and training programs provided to students, faculty and staff plans for future improvements in fire safety,
if determined necessary by such institution.


The Center for Campus Fire Safety (CCFS) is a non-profit organiza-
tion devoted to reducing the loss of life from fire at our nation's
campuses. The mission of the Center for Campus Fire Safety is to
serve as an advocate for the promotion of campus fire safety.

The Center serves as the focal point for the efforts of a number of
organizations and also as a clearinghouse for information relating
to campus fire safety.
