After more than 10 years, Carleton’s fire safety program is moving from the Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Office to Campus Safety Services (CSS), to better align with emergency response functions at the university.
For many years, Tim Golding has overseen the fire protection program on campus and we would like to thank him for his dedication to the portfolio. Tim remains part of the EHS team and will be returning to health and safety prevention activities.
We are pleased to announce that Carleton University has hired Chad Thomison as its new Fire Protection Co-ordinator. This position will report into the Emergency Management Program under Sal Ugarte, within Campus Safety Services. Chad’s first day at Carleton is Monday, Feb. 3.
As part of his portfolio, Chad will be a key component in mitigating safety concerns as they relate to fire protection and systems, and to lead and implement a new “All-Hazards” Building Warden Program.
Chad comes to the university from Texas, where he spent 13 years in the fire service. He has received numerous certifications with the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress. He served in the role of Fire Inspector where he was responsible for high hazard businesses and schools within the city of Cedar Hill, Texas. Recently, Chad was with the Ottawa-based CLV Group, where he was the Area Operations Manager responsible for fire safety and protection. He oversaw 30 properties, focusing on inspections, scheduling contractor repairs and training.
His office will be located within Campus Safety Services.
Please join us in giving Chad a warm Carleton welcome as he starts his new duties and thanking Tim for his dedication to fire protection on campus.
