Dr. Chandler wins award from the National Fire Protection Research Foundation

NSC Director Dr. Chandler received the 2011 Ronald K. Mengel Award from the national Fire Protection Research Foundation at the annual Suppression, Detection and Signaling Research and Applications A Technical Working Conference (SUPDET 2012) held at the Sheraton Crescent Hotel, Phoenix, AZ.

This award is for the best paper presented at the fire detection sessions of the 2011 Suppression & Detection Research and Applications Symposium (SUPDET 2011), as voted by those present at the symposium and affirmed by the Program Committee.

The award honors the memory of Ron Mengel, who had a long a distinguished career in the fire detection and alarm industry, and was a valued member of the Foundation’s Fire Detection and Alarm Research Council. The attendees and program committee selected Dr. Chandler’s 2011 paper “Emergency Environmental Stress Induced Diminished Cognitive Capacities: Adapting to Audience Challenges for Successful Emergency Communication and Incident Alerting Notification Applications,” which he presented at the SUPDET 2011 conference for this award.

Dr. Chandler is also presenting a research paper at the same conference where he is to receive the award titled “Hyper-Stress Induced Diminishment of Cognitive Abilities: A Review of Observed Tendencies and Recommendations for More Effective Management”.
