UCOP is seeking volunteer fire wardens for the Franklin building. The wardens help ensure that all staff members are safely evacuated from the building during an emergency. Not only do volunteers get the satisfaction of being a leader in the health and safety of fellow co-workers during an evacuation, but they also gain useful knowledge for handling emergency situations. Sign up by e-mailing fire-life safety director Matthew Leet at: Matthew.Leet@ucop.edu.
