The Urban Fire and Life Safety Education Task Force met in Las Vegas June 6-7 in advance of the NFPA Conference and Expo. The task force, composed of public fire safety educators/community risk reduction officers from North American cities with populations of 250,000 or more, examines the unique challenges facing fire and life safety educators in large cities and develops strategies to address those challenges. The group elected a new leadership team as pictured: Vice-Chairperson, Kwame Cooper, Los Angeles City Fire Department; Chairperson, Derrick Sawyer, Philadelphia Fire Department; and Secretary, John Concha, El Paso (Texas) Fire Department.
