Flaming success
In his job as publicist for the Oscar Peterson Concert Hall, John Jordan (above) is used to putting out fires, but not like this. Fire and Public Safety Officer Normand Lanthier organized a training session for staff and students one day this summer, and despite a steady downpour, it was a success. Normand said that September 18 to 22 was Fire Safety Awareness Week, and bells rang throughout the university. You must always respond immediately to a fire alarm, even if you know it is a drill, and move away from the building. For more details on campus fire safety, consult:


Corporate triathlon

For the third time, a team swimming, cycling and running for Concordia won the MAA Corporate Triathlon, held September 8 on Île Notre-Dame. The event, formerly called the Relais des Enterprises, is held every year to raise money for St. Mary’s and Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospitals. Concordia’s team was sponsored by a generous donor.
Above are, left to right, Jean-Sébastien Rioux (swimmer), Simon Malo (cyclist), Hisham Elamiri (runner) and Eckhard Siggel (team captain). Siggel is a professor in the Economics Department, and Hisham Elamiri coaches the Concordia running team. Well done!
