A. Gaines -
Kristina Anderson -
As the Deputy U.S. Fire Administrator for the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA). He is responsible for managing USFA and the programs and training activities at the National Emergency Training Center.
In May of 2011 Chief Gaines was awarded the Metropolitan Fire Chiefs Lifetime Achievement Award. This award is presented to a past or present Metro Chief based on a history of accomplishments, contributions to the organization, contributions to fire safety, demonstrated leadership, challenges overcome, and similar considerations. In August of 2011 Chief Gaines was presented with the International Association of Fire Chiefs President’s Award for meritorious service to the fire service.
Kristina Anderson has been traveling the country talking about the worst day of her life. Some moments are difficult to recall, and some memories she won't share - things she wants to keep for herself. But she has discovered that talking about April 16, 2007, is a way to gain control.
The Virginia Tech graduate can rattle off memories that stick in her mind from the morning a gunman severely injured her, killed 32 people, before turning the gun on himself.
As she and a friend came into French class and took their seats in the back of the Norris Hall classroom....... The shot would have killed her had it been three inches lower...... The cold and sleepiness that overcame her as, shot twice in the back, she leaned against a chair.
Talking about that day has helped her heal. And Anderson said she feels compelled to help others by talking about the days since, as she reflects on the tragedy and continues her emotional recovery.
"I learned a lot from this," she said, "A lot of life lessons." - She's passing on those lessons - advocating both practical safety measures and personal reflections about life - through the Koshka Foundation. She and her family started the foundation late in 2007 to promote school security, remember those lost on April 16 and inspire others facing challenges.
Anderson gave her first public speeches about the shootings during a busy spring break in March that took her to New York, Washington, D.C., and Finland. She spread the word about her foundation and shared her thoughts on school safety with law enforcement officials, school leaders, CEOs and American Red Cross workers.
Anderson's safety message is a bottom-up approach to security. Training students and faculty how to respond to emergencies - everything from dorm fires to physical attacks - will empower them to react and prevent further tragedy.
Off Campus Fires and Fire Related Deaths.......
Since off-campus housing presents a high fire risk to many students we are one of the first campus fire safety organizations to take this issue head on. In an effort to reduce off-campus fires and related deaths; we will schedule programming to introduce the only "task force" on off campus fires safety and how we can reduce these startling numbers.
One question all students must be able to answer -before- they move out of the residence halls and into the community is - How safe is your off-campus home?
Students with Special Needs and Disabilities
Certificates will be awarded for two days of continuing education training.

"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.

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 ground breaking event.
