ORADELL, N.J. -- Oradell's Bergen Catholic welcomed alumni Jay Tedino, of the Class of 2001, and John Hund, of the Class of 1979, to speak to the Class of 2016 about fire safety on Friday, April 22.

The senior assembly discussed fire safety in both on-campus and off-campus college housing. You can view this assembly here.

For more info on fire safety, visit the Friends of Rigby Foundation's website. The Foundation was formed in 2006, after Daniel H. Rigby passed away in an off-campus fire at Georgetown University," the website notes. "The Foundation seeks to establish a network of financial and organizational support to educate and assist students at colleges and universities in order to prevent this tragedy from happening again.

"The primary objective is to build a connection between students and local firefighters, as well as to provide such necessities as fire inspections, smoke detectors and fire extinguishers in off-campus homes."

Tedino is a co-founder and president of the Foundation.
