New Assistant Director of Fire Safety

I would like to introduce myself. I am Alan Snedeker, the new Assistant Director of Fire Safety. I began my new position September 1, 2011 (due to the retirement of Tom Hulse). Prior to that, I had been the Fire Protection Engineer at IUPUI since 2006.


My background is in mechanical engineering and fixed fire protection systems. I received my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 1987 from Rose Hulman Institute of Technology. After graduation, I started my career with Industrial Risk Insurers (IRI) as a Loss Prevention Consultant. I worked for IRI for 9 years doing mostly field surveys at their insured locations. After IRI I took a position with Pinkerton Security (now Securitas Inc) on the General Motors account. My title was “Fire Protection Specialist”. I helped manage the fire protection activities at several GM and Delphi facilities. I also obtained my professional engineering license in fire protection during this time. In July of 2006 I came to work at IUPUI as the Fire Protection Engineer. I have enjoyed my time and experience on the campus so far and look forward to the challenges that lay ahead in my new position.
