  • Creating Distance Learning Library Services for Illinois Firefighters: An Integrated Information Service with Online Firefighter II Certification Program.
    Lian Ruan, Illinois Fire Service Institute
  • Getting fire on the European political agenda - An overview: February 2002 was a very successful fire safety seminar. September's terrorist assaults in the USA have affected virtually every branch of our fire safety community but other cross boundary concerns exist.

Friday, May 31
