The Glenn A. Gaines Memorial Award for Excellence in Campus Fire Prevention
The Glenn A. Gaines Memorial Award for Excellence in Campus Fire Prevention is presented annually to those campuses or fire departments who unselfishly contributed to the greater good by providing effective fire safety education through program development, delivery, organization, and creativity in an effort to reduce the number fires on campus and in off campus student housing.
This award is named after Chief Glenn Gaines, the former Deputy U.S. Fire Administrator for the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA). Chief Gains had a strong commitment to campus fire safety and fire prevention. He was always interested in listening to success stories related to campus fire prevention and in-turn, he would offer thoughtful insights on what steps a campus community should work towards to help better protect students across the nation.
The 2015 award winner will be announced at the 13th Annual Campus Fire Safety and Emergency Management Conference and Expo.

Hard work pays off - we are experiencing "Safer Campuses Todays"
Today Over the last decade there has been a downward trend to on-campus related fires and fire fatalities, since its highest in 2006-2007 with 20 on-campus deaths.
The last fatal fire in a "Greek House" (fraternity/sorority) was 2006.
The last fatal residence hall fire occurred in 2005.Off-campus housing is still a great concern and risk for students.
Emergency Management (EM) and the All Hazards Approach
Recent statistics show a significant downward trend to fire and related incidents on campus. In 2011, we re-focused our efforts to include an "All Hazard" approach; expanding our focus to include emergency preparedness, emergency management, and general safety.
Our philosophy is to provide the resources and expertise necessary to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and prevent or reduce the loss of life and/or property from unexpected emergencies.
Campus EM Ready! - We have worked to help develop, build and implement EM programs on campus.
Preventing Cooking Fires on Campus
Cooking accounts for 83% of all campus housing fires. Stovetop cooking is the “# 1 cause of residential fires” throughout North America!

Every Student Goes Home
Every year we take on new initiatives and support various projects. As you start winding down this academic school year many students are preparing to move "off campus" and seek housing arrangements for the next step in their lives. I want to turn our focus and efforts on creating an environment free from the dangers of fire, and fire related injuries & fatalities to our nations future.
One of the goals all educational institutions have across the world is that at the end of the school year - Every Student Goes Home! Our new slogan and goal is a combined effort for unified safety on and off campus through education and an educational dialog between students, parents, campus administrators, housing officials (both on and off campus) and the local fire department.
Join us in the efforts to create a unified nationally accepted plan for protecting our students. If you have an interest in volunteering and supporting our efforts as part of our technical team, we are currently recruiting subject matter experts and corporate sponsorship to develop this national campaign and to work on our off campus fire death taskforce. Please e-mail Randy Hormann (info below) with your desire to participate and please include a small bio and or resume.
Task-Force on “Off Campus Fire Related Deaths”
As part of our "Every Student Goes Home" Campaign - We are working hard to develop a taskforce on “Off Campus Fire Related Deaths”. We are moving forward with an expert panel of fire safety professionals from across the country to develop a strategic plan to help reduce off campus housing fire deaths. Once completed, there will be a website to view all of our research information, and to obtain training tools. A number of professional organizations including the US Fire Administration have agreed to partner with us in this endeavor.

Federal Law - Campus Fire Safety Right-to-Know Act
This federal law was developed to help 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.
Through the educational division, we can assist your institution in managing reporting requirements and provide audits to ensure compliance with this federal law. Please contact us to set up an appointment to discuss how we can assist you.
