Adjunct Professor JJ College/Fire Science Institute 

As an Adjunct Professor saw an opportunity to join the Safer Buildings Coalition and provide the students a network to get better insight on First Responder radio communication (Wi-Fi, bi-directional) system capabilities and emergency messaging for high-rise building occupants.  With an enhanced in-building radio communication system, the Incident Commander (IC) and firefighters will be able to better communicate fireground operations from the Lobby Command Post to an upper floor level Operations (Ops) Sector. These seamless communique’ transmissions are key in providing the IC & Ops Sectors with critical building intelligence to mitigate an emergency event.
