Welcome to the Annual Conference and Expo.
This annual conference historically provides training and educational workshops, presented by the nation’s leading fire & life safety safety, security, code enforcement, fire protection and emergency management professionals.
only international conference focusing exclusively on Campus Fire
Safety, emergency management, Code Enforcement, life safety, firefighter
safety, and fire protection (under one roof).
Most of the educational facilities in this country are small colleges & universities. Administrators and k-12 staff wear “many hats” when dealing with "campus safety".
We focus this annual event on bringing you as much education and training related to all of these areas, so you can receive the “best value for your training dollar”.
Since 2000, there has been a definite downward trend to campus-related fire deaths since its peak in 2006-2007. The last fatal fire in a fraternity was 2006 and the last residence hall fire death occurred in 2005, a testimony to the strong efforts being made by schools and communities across the country.
Firefighter safety is a new component. This topic is very relevant and we are proud to offer some of the best knowledge and education available.
Each year about 300 professionals from all over the country—and around the world—consider attending this Conference & Expo a MUST.
What do they know that keeps them coming back? They know there’s no better place to be when they’re looking for ways to do a better job…update their knowledge…solve a problem…save money… and much more. Whatever their reasons may be, you’re sure to find plenty of great reasons of your own to attend this highly talked about and best rated conference of its kind!
The purpose of this annual event is to provide high-quality education, technology and networking opportunities. Our multiple day, multiple track format offers a self-directed, facilitated learning environment with education sessions, interactive forums, and extensive exhibitor & technology presentations.
Does your Campus have its own Fire Department?
Are you a small Fire Department with the response area covering a College or University?
Do you rely on students as part of your Fire/Rescue response?
If you can answer yes to one of more of these questions, then plan on attending this event and participating in the Campus Fire Department Symposium.
We received several requests for programming specifically for Campus Fire Departments and/or those departments who respond onto campus and rely on students as part of their emergency response staffing.
EDUCATIONAL VALUE FOR THE DOLLAR SPENT - We understand today's budgeting choices. One of the reasons we are ranked as the best conference of its kind, is because the value you receive for the dollar spent. No other event provides discounted savings for multiple attendees from one organization or confidential financial assistance for those organizations and campuses with economical hardships.
We continually keep our prices low while providing truly valuable training to keep fire safety and emergency management "Proactive not Reactive".
All attendees receive two days of training & education, 4 meals and 2 breaks, and so much more!

"After The Fire" - A Very Heartwarming True Story.....
Alvaro Llanos and Shawn Simons
On January 19, 2000, a fire raged through Seton Hall University's freshman dormitory, killing three students and injuring 58 others. Among the victims were Shawn Simons and Alvaro Llanos, roommates from poor neighborhoods who made their families proud by getting into college. They managed to escape, but both were burned terribly.
AFTER THE FIRE is the story of these young men and their courageous fight to recover from the worst damage the burn unit at Saint Barnabas hospital had ever seen. It is the story of the extraordinary doctors and nurses who work with the burned.
Alvaro and Shawn talk more about their ordeal of being college burn victims nationally at many colleges across the country. They also speak at high schools as well as fire safety training or firefighting seminars and conferences. Their motive is to be advocates for fire safety and prevention so that no other students will have to endure the pain that they suffered. Also, they strive to be the voice of many burn victims across the country who may feel "trapped in their new skin."
Their story is one of survival, perseverance, inspiration, hope, courage and friendship. They inspire to motivate students and professionals that life will give you many obstacles. It's how you overcome those obstacles by drawing strength, knowledge and motivation from those around you.
This two hour event will provide an opportunity for 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. Meet the State Fire Marshal and other Key officials.....
