NFPA launches new fire show in December


I saw today that the NFPA is launching a new fire show in December in Orlando. It appears that they’re looking at it as a good way to get folks together for training.

I’ve got a call into Kim Fontes at NFPA to find out if there’s a show floor, and who from the fire installation community they think would most benefit from the show.

From the release:

slated for December 13-17, 2010 in Orlando with three days of educational sessions and two days of post-conference seminars. During the three-day conference, there will be over 50 intensive educational sessions presented by NFPA staff experts and committee members on the latest fire and life safety code related topics in four tracks – Building and Life Safety, Detection and Alarm, Suppression, and Codes and Standards.

Post-conference seminars will be offered for Fire Protection Concepts and Analysis for Property Loss Prevention, Sprinkler Hydraulics, Code Requirements for Maintaining Fire and Life Safety Systems, and Explosion Prevention and Protection.

“This conference is a new and exciting concept for NFPA. It is a great way for us to combine some of the most sought after code topics in a single week,” said Kim Fontes, NFPA’s division director, product development. “It will provide participants an opportunity to hear directly from NFPA staff experts and committee members who work directly with the codes and standards.” Attendees will be able to receive CEUs toward their professional certifications.
