Harper fire science instructor one of nation’s best
Harper College professor Sam Giordano has been recognized as one of the top instructors of arson investigation in the country.
Forensicscolleges.com named Giordano in its top 13 list of the best college educators in a field responsible for investigating suspicious fires. The website surveyed professors’ field experience and contributions to research.
Giordano, who heads Harper’s Fire Science Technology curriculum, began his career in 1974 at the Frankfort Fire Protection District, where he started the agency’s first paramedic program.
“I used to believe that fighting fires was my calling, and at the time I am sure it was,” Giordano said in a news release. “Now I realize my calling is to teach others to fight fires.”
It’s not the first time Giordano has been celebrated. Last year, FireScience.org named him as one of the top 14 fire science instructors in the Midwest.
Since joining Harper’s faculty in 2002, Giordano started the Public Safety Dispatcher and Emergency and Disaster Management programs.
