While serving as President of the Connecticut Valley Chapter of the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP), Maryanne Steele, Assistant Director for Fire and Safety Services at EH&S, accepted the Gold Level award from the ASSP.  The award is to recognize the local organization’s achievement as a high-performing chapter with regard to its engagement, community outreach, providing professional development opportunities, and leadership.

EH&S partnered with Sam the Minuteman and UMass External Relations to produce eight separate Public Safety Announcements about Campus Safety.  The PSAs will be playing on UMass Social Media accounts throughout the month of October 2018.

A big thank you for helping with the PSAs go to a number of EH&S student employees and members of UMass Emergency Medical Services – and of course Sam!
