As we approach the inevitable end of an incredibly short summer, the time draws near when many of our nation’s college students head off to school. Join Chief Billy Hayes as he welcomes nationally recognized Campus Fire Safety Authority Ed Comeau to his show, “Stop, Drop, and Roll With the Punches” on Wednesday night at 9pm ET.

They’ll be discussing the overall state of affairs regarding fire safety on campuses...where the fire deaths are occurring and common factors in them. Find out what some schools are doing to reach out to students during Campus Fire Safety Month. Students with disabilities, previously an under-served demographic, now have a fighting chance due to new campus fire safety legislation.

Ed Comeau is the publisher of Campus Firewatch, an electronic newsletter focusing on the complex issues of campus fire safety and a recognized authority in the field. He manages the development team for the cutting-edge campus fire safety training program www.igot2kno.org, and was the lead author on a study of fire safety for students with disability in higher education as well as a study on student views and attitudes towards fire safety, both prepared under Federal grants.

Ed is the former chief fire investigator for the National Fire Protection Association and investigated incidents around the globe, including the English Channel Tunnel Fire, the Kobe Earthquake, the Dusseldorf Airport Terminal Fire, the Goethenburg Disco Fire and the Oklahoma City Bombing among others. Prior to joining NFPA, he was a fire protection engineer for the Phoenix Fire Department and was a fire fighter with the Amherst Fire Department while obtaining his bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Massachusetts.
