Dan has multiple structural and wildland fire fighter certifications and fire fighting experience in both arenas. He was the staff liaison for multiple NFPA codes and standards across a range of diverse technical topics.
Sreeni is currently on track to complete his Ph.D. in Fire Protection Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute later in 2016. He has a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology in Madras India, and a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the N.S.S.
