SUBJECT:    New Campus Fire Marshal

I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Joel Ross as the new UCSD Campus Fire Marshal in Environment, Health and Safety.

Joel has been at UCSD as a Deputy Fire Marshal since 2002. Prior to coming to UCSD, Joel was Assistant Fire Marshal at UC Davis for six years. Joel will be responsible for our comprehensive fire prevention program, as well as working with Facilities Management and Facilities Design and Construction to ensure our new and existing facilities meet fire and life safety codes.
