Fire Safety On and Off Campus 
Panel Includes: Justin Daniels, President and Fire Marshal, CCFS and University of Oklahoma Norman Campus; Jeff Pendley, Fire Captain, University of Southern California; Megan Clement, Associate, The Justice Fire Safety Foundation; Tim Knisely, Training Manager, Automatic Fire Alarm Association (AFAA); David Kurasz Executive Director, National Fire Sprinkler Association; Bonnie Woodruff, Advocate, Common Voices; Dan Jones, Chief, Common Voices

Overview: The purpose of this panel is to discuss fire and life safety in on and off campus residential and nonresidential occupancies. Since the fire at Seton Hall in 2000, many colleges and universities have installed fire alarm and fire sprinkler systems but many have not. Legislation has helped push for installation of these systems but some schools still remain noncompliant, particularly with off campus housing. Experts on this panel will examine the current code requirements, successes of many schools to install systems in new and existing buildings, and look at the future of fire protection in on and off campus housing.
