Dear Members of the SUNY Oswego Community-

I am very pleased to report that we had a very productive meeting yesterday evening with members of the Oswego Town Fire Department to discuss their concerns about the number of activations that bring the firefighters to campus.

Some of you might recall that the department had petitioned the town to remove the campus from its service area because of a high call volume. Yesterday evening, my leadership team and I listened to the firefighters’ concerns and shared with them measures we have taken to reduce the number of campus calls. We asked the department to give us time to institute additional measures – many of which they suggested at the meeting. I wish to thank them for their willingness to work with us as we seek out solutions that keep our campus community safe and reduce the volume of unnecessary calls.

I will keep you posted on all new actions we take, including increased education sessions and trainings. Please be assured that safety will remain our priority now and always.

Remain well,

Peter O. Nwosu, Ph.D.
