Join us on October 3rd for the SFPE New England Chapter’s first dinner meeting of the 2016-2017 year! Lieutenant Chris Towski of the Cambridge Fire Department will join us to provide a presentation through the eyes of the fire service on the requirements and enforcement of NFPA 241, Safeguarding Construction, Alternation, and Demolition Operations. These operations present an increased potential for fire due to the presence of large quantities of combustible materials and debris, as well as unusual ignition sources that may not be present following construction operations.
Lt. Towski is a Fire Lieutenant for the City of Cambridge Massachusetts Fire Department with over twenty years of service. His current position for nearly ten years has been in the Fire Prevention Office, where his primary duties are to enforce State laws and codes related to Fire Prevention and Protection. He is also a Massachusetts Licensed Electrician and Construction Supervisor. He is certified in the fields of Emergency Medical Technician, Firefighter Levels I and II, Fire Officer Level I, Fire Instructor Levels I and II, and Fire Incident Safety Officer. He has been his department’s Electrical Safety Officer for almost ten years. He is a Technical Committee Member of NFPA 241, as well as the newly created NFPA standard for Energy Storage Systems. In addition he is currently the Second Vice President of the Fire Prevention Association of Massachusetts.
