McAvoy, Darren; Kuhns, Michael; Dettenmaier, Megan; Dupéy, Lauren Nicole – Journal of Extension, 2020
The combination of large volumes of woody fuel needing disposal after forestry activities and evolving regulatory restrictions makes traditional methods of pile burning increasingly difficult. Alternatively, using small kilns to pyrolyze these fuels on-site yields a potentially valuable product: biochar. In this article, we describe an educational…

Amodeo, Kayla L.; Nickelson, Jen – American Journal of Health Education, 2020
Background: Over half of all firefighter deaths are due to heart attacks. Physical activity (PA) is a protective factor against cardiovascular disease, but most firefighters do not meet recommended PA levels. Volunteer firefighters (VFFs), particularly in rural areas, may have unique reasons for not meeting recommendations. Purpose: To examine…

Faulconer, Emily; Dixon, Zachary; Griffith, John C.; Frank, Hayden – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
The university traditionally has been the foundation for young adults' professional development, yet the proclivity toward safety culture has garnered less focus in higher education than in the workforce. A survey of faculty at a medium-sized, research-active, private institution revealed specific areas of policy noncompliance as well as specific…
