Fire Control Instruments (FCI), Westwood, Mass., a part of Honeywell Fire Systems, will host a 16-city seminar series entitled “Meeting Survivability Code Requirements Using Integrated Mass Notification Technology.” Each seminar will highlight ways to easily address new code requirements and achieve maximum survivability and efficiency in the design of fire alarm and building evacuation systems.

“The new 2006 edition of NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm Code proposes changes that allow the use of fire panels for mass notification in the event of emergencies,” explained Pete Clark, vice president of marketing for Honeywell Fire Systems. “Officials recognize that panels designed specifically for high survivability promote life safety in the event of a catastrophe. Public awareness about homeland security is definitely changing the way we live and work.”

FCI’s seminars will begin in the Boston metropolitan area on Sept. 20 and continue across the country, ending in Denver on Nov 17. For more information on the 16-city tour, visit
