Silent Knight by Honeywell recently launched a nationwide series of seminars featuring industry experts speaking on current requirements for life safety systems that are specific to each session’s region. The company said it has geared these free half-day seminars toward the needs of architects, engineers, code enforcement officials, and facility managers responsible for life safety systems, occupant health and security.
The speaker at each seminar will be an engineer, authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) or qualified life safety consultant, who will provide updates on that region’s latest code adoptions from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), International Building Code (IBC) and International Fire Code (IFC). The speaker will also address the area’s employment of more fire alarm voice evacuation systems and the rising demand for emergency communication systems, with added emphasis on meeting audio intelligibility mandates. Presenters also will walk through real examples of recent fire alarm and voice evacuation system designs from the region, noting key pitfalls to avoid. In addition to valuable handouts, each seminar will offer attendees ample time for questions and answers.
These local-level seminars will run from February through April, and attendees will qualify to receive continuing education units (CEUs) and continuing professional development credits (CPDs). The educational presentation will run from 8:00 a.m. until noon, with breakfast and lunch provided free of charge.
