Building & Fire Safety Team Wins P.R.I.D.E Award


The UW Police selected EH&S’s Building & Fire Safety team to be the recipient of their P.R.I.D.E award for Community Partner of the Year. Mark Murray, assistant director of Building & Fire Safety, and Scott Nelson, fire safety & engineering manager, were recognized for their collaborative work with the UW Police throughout last year at an event on February 28, 2018.

Major Steve Rittereiser described Mark as “a real partner in helping protect the campus” and noted his and Scott’s contributions to the UW’s compliance with regulatory responsibilities, such as the Clery Act. He mentioned Scott’s technical knowledge of building and fire safety enhances the UW Police’s ability to provide security during sporting events.

Major Rittereiser concluded his remarks by saying: “Mark, Scott and the staff of Environmental Health and Safety Building and Fire Safety have been a key contributor to our success at UWPD. Together and especially in 2017, we have created a meaningful and beneficial partnership.”
