Notre Dame Cathedral Fire: RaCERS Faculty Sought Out by National Media


National media sought RaCERS faculty to comment and explain the devastating fire at Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral. In a flurry of activity, Prof. Glenn Corbett, a fire science professor, technical editor, and firefighter, appeared on CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s Prime Time on unprecedented back-to-back nights. Corbett, a registered fire protection engineer, was also quoted in the NY Times, NBC News, and multiple other outlets. Director Charles Jennings pitched in to appear in studio on CBSN. Jennings is a Credentialed Chief Fire Officer in addition to his expertise in fire service operations and protection of cultural properties.

The faculty used their expertise to explain building construction, firefighting, the early investigative questions, and the need for fire protection in cultural and religious properties.
