Prestigious US fire award for VU researchers

US fire protection authorities have awarded professors Dorothy Bruck and Ian Thomas the 2009 Harry C. Bigglestone Award for excellence in communicating fire protection concepts.

The award is for their paper “Comparison of the Effectiveness of Different Fire Notification Signals in Sleeping Older Adults” that appeared in the publication, Fire Technology last year.

The award includes a cash prize from the Fire Protection Research Foundation of $5000 that will be presented at the National Fire Protection Association World Safety Conference and Exposition in Chicago in June.
