The University of Maryland’s (UMD) Department of Fire Protection Engineering (FPE) formally recognized its first class of Distinguished Alumni at FPE’s Alumni Dinner, held at the annual meeting of the National Fire Protection Association in June 2015. The eleven honorees were selected by FPE’s Board of Visitors for outstanding achievements in the field and/or significant contributions to the department. Jack Poole was one of the eleven inaugural Distinguished Alumni recognized by the FPE’s Board of Visitors. Mr. Poole is also the Co-Chairman, with Dr. Louis A. Gritzo, FM Global Research VP, of the Board of Visitors.

“[Our] distinguished alumni demonstrate how a quality education combined with a passion for the field of fire protection can lead to lifelong success,” says Dr. Louis A. Gritzo, FM Global Research VP and Co-Chair of FPE’s Board of Visitors. “This inaugural group sets an exceptional and inspirational example for the next generation and draws attention to the important work being done in this discipline.”

“The members of this exceptional group are already well-known to FPE alumni,” Dr. James Milke, Chair of the UMD FPE Program, adds. “They are the teachers and leaders who define and advance our field, or they are the people who can be counted on to support department initiatives, contribute to our curriculum, attend our events, and recruit or mentor our students. They are Terps who have made a difference in the department and the discipline.”

The UMD FPE Department has installed a new display in its J.M. Patterson offices designed to highlight each of the current and future honorees.
