Fire Protection Research Foundation Presents William M. Carey Award


The authors of a paper titled “Results of a Clinical Study of the Waking Effectiveness of Fire Signaling Devices” were recently presented with the William M. Carey Award by the Fire Protection Research Foundation, an affiliate of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The award was presented at the foundation’s 10th annual Fire Suppression and Detection Research Application Symposium held in Orlando, Fla., earlier this month.

The authors were Erin Ashley and Jacqueline DeBois from Combustion Science and Engineering in Columbia, Md. The award acknowledges the symposium’s best paper from last year, voted by attendees. All total, 25 papers were presented at the conference.

The conference provides an opportunity for the fire detection and suppression professionals to share new information, innovations, and plans regarding upcoming research. The William M. Carey Award honors the late William Carey, P.E., senior staff engineer at UL. Carey made many contributions to new fire suppression technologies and served on various technical advisory committees of the foundation.
