      The Glenn A. Gaines Memorial Award for Excellence in Campus Fire Prevention


The Glenn A. Gaines Memorial Award for Excellence in Campus Fire Prevention is presented annually to those campuses or fire departments who unselfishly contributed to the greater good by providing effective fire safety education through program development, delivery, organization, and creativity in an effort to reduce the number fires on campus and in off campus student housing.

This award is named after Chief Glenn Gaines, the former Deputy U.S. Fire Administrator for the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA). Chief Gains had a strong commitment to campus fire safety and fire prevention. He was always interested in listening to success stories related to campus fire prevention and in-turn, he would offer thoughtful insights on what steps a campus community should work towards to help better protect students across the nation.


Prior to his passing in 2015, Glenn A. Gaines was the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Deputy U.S. Fire Administrator for the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA). He began his tenure in March 2009 and was responsible for managing USFA programs and training activities conducted at the National Emergency Training Center.

Chief Gaines began his fire service career as a member of the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department in Virginia. He served in numerous capacities over the course of his 35-year career, including Fire Marshal, Chief Training Officer, and Chief of Operations, culminating in his appointment as Fire Chief from August 1991 until December 1998. He was in charge of the nationally recognized Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Urban Search and Rescue team that frequently deployed throughout the United States as well as internationally. He served as a faculty member at the USFA’s National Fire Academy, and was actively involved with organizations related to the professional development of the fire and emergency services.
