2011 Campus Fire Department Symposium (4 Hour Event) Does your campus have its own Fire Department? Does your protection area cover a college or University? Does your staffing consist primarily of College/University students? If you can answer yes to one or more of these questions this symposium is for you. It’s a chance to get Campus based fire departments and those who protect campuses in the same room to discuss issues, problems, and what goes right when protecting these institutions. -This session will be moderated by the University of Notre Dame Fire Department and the Purdue University Fire Department (01) Emergency Response Development What is the best approach to developing a comprehensive plan? Who should be on the development team? How do we start and who should be on the response team? Since disasters and emergencies seldom pre-announce their arrival, an effective plan from the first emergency calls through the after action reports and critiques are a must. -Presented by the Rolf Jensen & Associates Group (03) The "Off Campus" Fire Problem Off Campus life loss to fire results in unacceptable emotional and financial losses that can and must be addressed. This workshop will take a look at the off campus fire problem and discuss some actions educational administrators and safety officials can take to promote off campus fire and life safety. Current on and off campus fire and life loss statistics will be reviewed. The financial and emotional impact of the fire losses and what is happening nationally to prevent these tragedies will be discussed. It is time that a call to action is responded to by educational safety administrators across the nation, much is happening in the area of fire safety let’s learn how we can help promote fire protection and reduce fire losses. -Presented by Ron Brown, Regional Manager, NFSA (31) The Basics Of Off Premise Communications For Fire Alarms Special presentation by UL. Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) is an independent product safety certification organization that classifies, tests, and inspects electronic devices, fire protection equipment and assemblies, and specific construction materials for life-safety performance and certifies their compliance with National Codes. -Presented by Underwriters Laboratories (32) Special Event Security: A Case Study The video Game On: A Large Venue Security Case Profile will be reviewed and discussed. Follow an Ohio State University football Saturday from start to finish and see how the effort employs multi-agency collaboration and National Incident Management System principles. You'll see selections from a bestpractices video funded by a Department of Homeland Security grant.

Police and Fire executives, Emergency Managers and administrators of agencies that protect large (and small) community events will benefit most from this workshop. Instructions on how to procure a copy of the video will be made available. -Presented by the Ohio State University (06) Campus Mass Notification Mass Notification Systems (MNS) are still a concern with many campus administrations, students, their parents, and the general public all who want to know about the emergency notification systems and procedures that campuses should have in place. The events that continue to unfold with campus emergencies occurring on a too frequent basis is causing greater interest in how to best to install reliable MNS and establish policies to use these systems effectively. Mr. Moore will review the requirements found in the National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code® as well as discuss the concepts of risk analysis used to establish the effective use of any mass notification system to be installed. Many companies are approaching colleges and universities with their products calling their offerings “Mass Notification”. Mr. Moore will discuss why some of these systems may be considered as back-up systems but not your primary means for proper and effective emergency notification. -Presented by Hughes and Associates (25) NFPA 25 - Water Based Fire Protection - An Overview Of Inspection, Testing, And Maintenance NFPA 25, Inspection, Testing, And Maintenance Of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems. As its name specifies, the standard consolidates all the requirements for sprinkler systems and related systems such as underground pip-

10

ing, fire pumps, storage tanks, water spray systems, and foam water sprinkler systems. The main reason for the standard was because inadequate maintenance was one of the contributing factors for system failures. A large percentage of system failures were because of something very simple, such as the inadvertent closing of a valve for whatever reason-maybe maintenance, maybe intentionally, or maybe mistakenly. This standard pays attention to that particular problem. It requires weekly and sometimes monthly inspections of valves to make sure that they open when they're supposed to be. NFPA 25 is referenced by of most fire codes throughout the country including the International Fire Code. - Presented by the Cintas Fire Protection (19)

Be Prepared – How To Survive An Active Shooter Incident This is the first comprehensive program of its kind in the nation. Recent attention and focus on "Active shooters on campus" has brought on the need to develop and present an education session on how to prepare our faculty, Staff, and Students on what their role is and what needs to be done to increase their survival should an active shooting take place on their campus. Our program is 90 minutes and covers six (6) modules. They are: 1) Defining an Active Shooter 2) Surviving an Active Shooter Incident 3) Reporting an Active Shooter Incident - What critical Information the Police need immediately to send the appropriate response resources 4) Helping the Injured 5) Police Response - What to Expect - Learn and Understand what responding Officers will and won't be

doing in the early stages of an Active Shooter Incident 6) Closing & Follow-Up Presented by Wayne State University (26) Construction Safety And Risk Management On Campus When construction and capital improvements projects take place on campus property, campus officials and emergency services personnel need to be involved in the planning and construction process to ensure the safety of their students while this work takes place. Risk Management issues relating to capital improvements on campus property will be discussed including the following topics: 1) Pre planning for construction activities 2) Fire prevention and emergency planning 3) Site Security 4) Public Safety

-Presented by C. Shafer, CSP, CHST, CRIS of Shafer Safety Solutions, LLC (23) NFPA 72 - National Fire Alarm Code - an overview of Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance NFPA 72, National Fire Alarm Code, outlines acceptable test methods to be used when testing the fire alarm system, equipment associated with the fire alarm system, and accessory equipment. Your fire alarm system will only operate properly if it is maintained noting that impairments/problems will not be obvious without testing. NFPA 72 is referenced by of most fire codes throughout the country including the International Fire Code. - Presented by the Cintas Fire Protection (18) Fire Protection Technology There have been a couple of new sprinklers (by Viking) that have received a lot of attention from the campus housing folks at several colleges and universities. One is our flat plate concealed, residential sidewall sprinkler ... the only one of its kind in the industry. Additionally, Viking will be introducing new gas systems (Novec, FM-200, etc.) over the next few months. These systems are used in highly sensitive areas on campus, such as server rooms, security stations, etc. ... any highly sensitive area where you would want to limit exposure to water in the event of a fire. -Special presentation by the folks from Viking Fire Protection Technologies NFPA 10 - Portable Fire Extinguishers - An Overview Of Inspection, Testing, And Maintenance What you might want to know about maintaining and using portable fire extinguishers. NFPA 10, Portable Fire Extinguishers, provides minimum requirements for the se-

lection, placement, Inspection, and servicing of portable fire extinguishers. The provisions of this standard apply to the selection, installation, inspection, maintenance, and testing of portable extinguishing equipment. 1.1.1 Portable fire extinguishers are intended as a first line of defense to cope with fires of limited size. 1.1.2 The selection and installation of extinguishers is independent of whether the building is equipped with automatic sprinklers, standpipe and hose, or other fixed protection equipment. NFPA 10 is referenced by of most fire codes throughout the country including the International Fire Code - Presented by the Cintas Fire Protection (20) Suicidal Students Although adults don't often know about it, many college & university students experience symptoms of depression, think about suicide, make plans to die by suicide, and even make a suicide attempt each year. This program provides information and resources for identifying troubled students, and information regarding suicide prevention for college and university students. - Presented by Tri-Harbour Training Associates (16) State of Ohio Campus Meeting This is a 2 hour event. Co-Sponsored by the Ohio Board Of Regents and Campus Fire Safety. Colleges, Universities and Campuses of Ohio get together to discuss those issues affecting their campus. Meet campus safety professions from around the State and develop networking relationships 'right next door'. Members of the fire service with colleges and Universities are encouraged to attend as well.

Fire Protection/Life Safety Compliance Approaches For Campus Laboratory Facilities The volumes of hazardous materials needed in a campus laboratory facility vary, depending on the research and teaching requirements. For example, some facilities place a greater emphasis on chemistry activities, and consequently store and use larger quantities of materials. From a fire protection and life safety standpoint, the model codes contain several design approaches for the storage and use of hazardous materials in such facilities. This presentation provides details of three code compliance approaches for fire protection and separation, based on the major applicable requirements contained in the 2006 International Building Code (IBC), 2006 International Fire Code (IFC) and NFPA 45, Standard for Fire Protection in Laboratories Using Chemicals (2004 Edition). The concepts and associated fire protection and life safety features contained in control areas, NFPA 45 laboratory units, and High Hazard occupancies will be discussed and applied to the college and university laboratory setting. -Presented by the Rolf Jensen & Associates Group (09) Legal Issues In Fire Prevention And Response Using situational analysis, participants will learn to identify and examine common legal issues encountered within planning and prevention, emergency response, liability, and the formation of policies and agreements. This session will review the elements of liability and Standard of Care. As part of the interactive session, the audience will analyze hypothetical scenarios and actual fire safety events to identify potential legal issues. The session will highlight practical topics related to fire safety, emergency response, and management such as the chal-

12

13

lenges and barriers to implementing agreements and potential legal issues involved in fire safety. The learning objectives of the session will be to understand the fundamentals of liability, recognize the principles of Standard of Care, and to review basic legal issues within prevention, emergency management and response. -Presented by All Clear Emergency Management Group (04) Where Does Senior Management Fit Into Emergency Planning? Within the last few years it has been realized that campus Emergency Operation Plans needed a major overall. Sr. Mgmt. stepped in and carried the Emergency Response banner but their efforts were not the standard incident management. It took two years to carefully manage their expectations and train them to adopt incident management. Our organizational chart ap-

pears "typical" but has a place for Sr. management where they can be effective and yet still allow the operation of emergency response to take place. This has all been accomplished with few toes (egos) being stepped on. -Presented by Carnegie Mellon University (12) International Students And Fire Safety Educational Programs With international student enrollment at a record high it is even more important we learn to communicate important fire and safety messages to this vulnerable population in effective and meaningful manner. Many if not most students receive little to no fire safety education growing up and have proven somewhat unknowledgeable on important behaviors such as how to respond when a resident hall fire alarm activates or why we don't some inside public buildings, or even

what is a smoke alarm and how am I suppose to care for it. Commonly held teaching approaches may not (as effective with this culturally diverse group. This class will get you thinking about how i-students are different, what they may not know, and how to find and effectively reach them with your safety & security messages. A must for those experiencing a sudden and increasing i-student population growth. -Presented by the Corvallis Fire Department, OR (28) Threat Assessment In A Campus Environment: A Team Approach This presentation offers an overview of what “campus” Threat Assessment Teams are and how they operate. Simple useful definitions of threat assessment and targeted violence will be offered. Also included will be the pros and cons of formally organized teams vs. informal teams and policy and procedures. A re-

14

view and discussion of the recently released report Campus Attacks: Targeted Violence Affecting Institutions of Higher Education” (joint U.S. Secret Service FBI, U.S. Department of Education report) will be included. -Presented by The Ohio State University (05) Fire Safety Education And Training Grants: Did You Know Your Campus May Be Eligible To Receive These Educational Dollars? This Is A 2 Hour Session Note: This Session Is The CAMPUS Version And Is Continuous Until 12:00pm. Fire Department Grant Information Is Offered From 1:00pm Until 3:30pm I) The Fire Prevention and Safety Grants (FP&S) are part of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG), and are under the purview of the Grant Programs Directorate in the Federal Emergency Management Agency. FP&S grants support projects that enhance the safety of the public and firefighters from fire and related hazards. The grants are competitive, and their primary goal is to target high-risk populations. Grant awards are made in order to mitigate high incidences of death and injury and to carry out research for improving firefighter safety. Examples of the types of fire prevention projects that are supported by FP&S include smoke alarm installation, fire prevention and public safety education campaigns, juvenile fire setter interventions, media campaigns, and arson prevention and awareness programs. II) Grant Writing and Grant Administrator - a service that is free to you. We have researched nationally and have teamed up with the best. Our administrator has an excellent suc-

cess record in helping organizations receive awards and administering the grant after the award is received. What can our Grant Administrator do for you? Would you like to: 1) Apply for a grant from a successful grant writer and administrator who understands how the grant process works (at no cost to you)? 2) If selected - have an administrator manage the grant process for your organization (at no cost to you)? 3) All of this at NO expense to your organization. There have been Federal Grants and others issued to College/University campuses and we at Campus Fire Safety have provided training and education to students on some of these campuses. We will discuss these successful campuses awards and the ‘key’ to writing a successful grant to meet your educational needs. Off Campus Fire Safety The Off Campus Fire Safety program will be geared for a safety professional to look at alternative ways in education and enforcement while conducting fire and life safety inspections for Greek housing. The program will have strong emphasis on the design and implementation of a Fire and Life Safety Resource Guide book to aide in communication and documentation between the houses and the inspectors. This program will also discuss effective ways to work with the Office of the Deans of Students for compliance and educational classes that can easily be applied to any program to support enforcement. -Presented by Purdue University (08) You’ve Just Been Assigned Emergency Management, Now What? In addition to the many other hats

you wear in your job, your boss just gave you the responsibility of Emergency Management for the campus… now what? This session will provide an overview of what a good emergency management program entails and how to get your program kick started in the right direction. The material will focus on how to get leadership buy in, planning tips and tricks, common pitfalls of new emergency managers, available resources and assistance, and internal and external partnerships. This session is open to anyone interested in Emergency Management topics. It may be your job title next… -Presented by All Clear Emergency Management Group (10) Cyber Stalking According to the National Institute of Justice, Unsolicited email is one of the most common forms of harassment, including hate, obscene, or threatening mail. As with stalking in the physical world, email stalking can result from an attempt to initiate a relationship, repair a relationship, or threaten and traumatize a person. While email stalking may be comparable to traditional stalking in some instances, it is not restricted to this format. Stalkers can more comprehensively use the Internet in order to slander and endanger their victims. The stalker can assume control of the victim's computer and the only defensive option for the victim is to disconnect and relinquish their current Internet "address". The situation is like discovering that anytime you pick up the phone, a stalker is on-line and in control of your phone. Being knowledgeable about educating students about cyber stalking is extremely important on college campuses, especially since a college community is so close nit. Students rely on computers to assist them in everyday work for school, as well as for social purposes.

- Presented by LIGATT Security International (LGTT) (24) Campus Fire Safety - Round Table/ Town Hall Forum What colleges and universities are doing with their fire safety management plans? We will hear from different institutions on what is being done to successfully protect their campuses. Topics such as fire drills – effect?, mandatory fire safety training for all students, mandatory fire safety training for RA’s, and unannounced fire drills. YOU set the agenda. - Presented by CampusFireSafety.com and the Hormann Foundation (15) Legislative Workshop / Update Remember all of that legislation about campus fire safety, sprinklers systems for residence halls (dorms) and "students’ right to know"? This session will talk about and give an update as to what happened with all of those bills and how to support new legislation coming down the road. H.R. 2136: Honorable Stephanie Tubbs Jones College Fire Prevention Act March 19, 2010 - the US House of Representatives passed the Honorable Stephanie Tubbs Jones College Fire Prevention Act. The late Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones introduced the same bill in each of the last four sessions of Congress. The bill directs the Secretary of Education to make competitive grants to colleges, fraternities, and sororities for up to half the cost of installing and modernizing fire prevention and sprinkler systems in student and fraternal housing, with dedicated funding for minority-serving institutions and fraternities/sororities. The bill has been co-sponsored by a bipartisan group of 47 lawmakers, endorsed by national fire prevention

organizations and over 100 fraternities and sororities. Companion legislation has been introduced in the Senate by Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown. Fire Department Grant Information Note: This Session Is The Fire Department Version And Is Continuous Until 3:30pm. Campus Grant Information Is Offered From 10:15am To 12:00pm I) The Fire Prevention and Safety Grants (FP&S) are part of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG), and are under the purview of the Grant Programs Directorate in the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The Campus Fire Safety Right-toKnow Act Signed into law by then President Bush this law is designed to increase fire safety awareness on college/ university campuses across the nation by providing students and their families with the fire safety records of colleges/universities. This act was designed to require post-secondary institutions to publicly display fire safety information and statistics, much as they already do with other safety statistics, such as campus theft and assault. This information would inform prospective and current students of the policies, concerns and fire safety conditions that are present at the institution in which they have applied or are enrolled - Presented by CampusFireSafety.com and the Hormann Foundation Campus Fire Data Project This program provides a launching point for a nationwide campus fire reporting program and will start a more accurate and defined portrayal of fire as it affects colleges and universities in the United States. As there has yet to be a true study done on these numbers, we will pioneer the effort with the support and expertise of several partners with a common mission of fire and life safety on campuses such as the National Fire Protection Association. NEW => Greek Life and Student Housing Fire Safety This special presentation by the Purdue University Fire Chief will discuss issues with Greek Housing. This will include programs campuses/schools have put into place to help protect students living in these housing facilities. - Presented by Purdue University

Campus Mass Notification - CM When a disaster happens or is imminent, campus officials must be able to quickly and efficiently alert everyone concerned in time to avert death, injury and loss of property. At the same time, those in authority must contend with issues common to emergency management from a facility standpoint, including the preservation of data and the proper shutdown of all critical computer systems. Unfortunately, when an emergency is about to happen or is unfolding, time usually does not allow individual contact with each and every dormitory, classroom, nurse’s station or administrative office. To foster a safe and incident-free outcome as well as provide real-time information to all building occupants or personnel in the immediate vicinity of a building during emergency situations, preplanning and a number of advanced, high-tech mass notification systems are necessary. - Presented by UTC Fire & Security (30) Balanced Approach to Developing a Fire Protection & Life Safety Plan What is a Balanced Fire Protection Plan to Promote Life Safety? What is the value and benefits of such a plan? Students as well as your faculty, staff and visitors must be protected from fire and other emergencies. When you protect them, you are also protecting your buildings from the dangers of fire. Campus safety professionals are dedicated and committed to the saving of life and property from fire. A retired District Fire Chief with 15 years as a chief officer will gives his thoughts as to what constitutes a Balanced Fire Protection Plan to Promote Life Safety. - Presented by James W Dunham Fire Protection Consultant (38)
