Green issues are becoming more ingrained in all aspects of life, from how we generate electricity to how buildings are constructed.  This is beginning to have a significant impact upon fire safety and the codes are starting to look at how address issues such as roof-top photovoltaic units, residential automobile charging stations and much more.  Also, fire safety is being positioned as a solution to reducing the carbon footprint as well, from reducing exhaust emissions on fire apparatus to controlling fires in their incipient stages through sprinklers.

Ed Comeau will discuss a number of these issues and what is being done both domestically and internationally when it comes to the intersection of fire safety and the environment.

Ed Comeau is the owner of writer-tech.com and a former chief fire investigator for the NFPA and a fire protection engineer for the Phoenix Fire Department.  He publishes the newsletter Campus Firewatch and has been closely involved in national campus fire safety issues for over a decade.  He received his degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Massachusetts while a member of the Amherst Fire Department.
