What People Say About Our Forums

Fire Safety Officer, Nathaniel Smith, Catholic University 

"CCFS is one of the most effective advocates for College and University (Fire) Safety in the country. Professional engineers, technicians, educators, builders, students, law enforcement, fire services, associated companies, and businesses from nearly every industry will be in attendance this fall at the CCFS Campus Fire Forum 2022. The group also includes special interests for those affected by various disabilities along with student-empowered focus groups for Fire Safety Engineering. Keynote Forum speakers Al LLanos and Shawn Simons from After the Fire (ATF) will also be at Catholic University in mid-October. I urge you to take advantage of the resources available through partnering with CCFS. I hope to see you at the 2022 Campus fire Forum, October 31 - November 3." Nate Smith, Catholic University, OSHS l Fire Safety Officer l Environmental Health Safety and Risk Management
