NFPA Fire & Life Safety Conference set for December
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)’s Fire & Life Safety Conference will take place December 12 -14 this year. The meeting is to be held in Orlando, Fla., at the Hilton at Walt Disney World® Resort and will include three days of educational sessions, as well as two days of post-conference seminars.
More than 60 education sessions will be presented for attendees to learn the latest on fire and life safety code topics and receive continuing education units (CEUs). Presentations will be led by NFPA staff experts and technical committee members and will be organized in four tracks — building and life safety, detection and alarm, fire suppression, and codes and standards.
The conference program includes lunchtime presentations on recent Fire Protection Research Foundation projects, how 9/11 and the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire affected high rise design, and a panel discussion on emerging code issues.
Post-conference seminars will be offered, including, Water Supply Analysis and Hydraulic Calculations (formerly known as Sprinkler Hydraulics); 2012 NFPA 1, Fire Code; 2012 NFPA 101®, Life Safety Code® Changes; and 2012 NFPA 99, Standard for Health Care Facilities Update.
