Partners in Prevention is our 2019 theme. Fire and accident prevention is a movement committed to the idea there is success in working together to save lives and prevent property damage.

 

Prevention is more than fire safety, emergency management and fire protection. Prevention is also related to firefighter safety and wellness. The "Everyone Goes Home" campaign was designed to create programing to ensure firefighter safety is paramount to ensuring everyone goes home safely after their shift.
 

We provide (under one roof) the tools, education, ideas, experts, and networking opportunities to grow and expand your personal and professional development so you can make a difference in your community.

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, security, code enforcement, fire protection and emergency management professionals.

We are the only international conference focusing exclusively on campus fire safety, emergency management, code enforcement, life safety, firefighter safety, and fire protection (under one roof).

This Conference is continually ranked as the "Best of it's Kind"...

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”.


M
ost of the educational facilities in this country are K-12 public schools and small colleges & universities. Administrators and K-12 staff wear “many hats” when dealing with "campus safety".

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.

Fire Service, Fire & Building Code Officials, and AHJ training is a big focus of this annual event as well. Understanding how the codes work, fire protection systems operate, the legal aspects of code enforcement, and how to manage such a unique operation are some of the staples of how this conference has become one of the best of its kind.

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. 

Our corporate division, The Fire Code Academy, provides training from quality presenters and engineers relating to fire protection, plans review, and much more. These programs benefit the campus professional as well as the fire service, law enforcement and fire code officials. A college or university campus is really nothing more then a small city with the same issues as larger communities. Much of this training fits both campus life and municipal code and fire officials.

What do our attendees keeps them coming back? They know there’s no better place to be when looking for ways to do a better job… update their knowledge… solve a problem… save money… and much more. Whatever the 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!

Each year about 300 professionals from all over the country—and around the world—consider attending this Conference & Expo a MUST.

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, breakfast breaks, lunch, and more...

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. 

 

                                    We will present the award recipient for 2018

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.

What are people are saying about our conferences and services?

 

I was impressed.  Campus fire safety is a narrow, niche field and making a relevant conference, I imagine, is a challenge.  That challenge is also what makes it so important.  In our comparatively small industry, the networking, vendor validity, and conference content is so important because our unique needs would be marginalized in a larger, more broad setting. Thank you, again!!

- Deputy Chief Michael Makuch, Univ. of Connecticut Fire Departmentt.

 


I would like to comment on the annual expos.  I have been able to attend many of these programs.  I’ve been in the facility operations, management, maintenance, and property loss prevention for almost 30 years.  In that time I’ve been to many conferences, expos, training courses and worked with property loss companies like Factory Mutual, Marsh and others.  The quality of the Campus Fire Safety Annual Conference and Expo is one of the best I’ve ever attended.  It’s not the biggest, and it’s not in an exotic location. However, it is one of the best I’ve ever been part of.  It is well run, well received, relevant, useful with a broad range of topics, and it’s very interesting. The vendors are top rate and appropriate. 

-  Cris Wadham, Plant Operations and Maintenance, Wright State University
