Keynote Speaker

John Barylick

Author, The Killer Show

On February 20, 2003, a heavy-metal band set off pyrotechnics inside a run-down roadhouse in Rhode Island called The Station.  Sparks from the pyro struck polyurethane foam on the club’s walls, resulting in a fire which killed 100 persons and injured hundreds more. 

The Station Nightclub fire was caused by several bad decisions by the band, club owners, foam manufacturers and the local fire marshal, all of which valued profit over safety.

John Barylick was one of the lead plaintiff attorneys on the civil cases spawned by the fire, and is the author of KILLER SHOW, The Station Nightclub Fire, America’s Deadliest Rock Concert.  John’s presentation explores the multiple causes of the tragedy and the fire science behind each.  It has been embraced by fire service and event-safety professionals throughout the United States and Canada.
