Workshop Covers NFPA 72 Changes

Westwood, MA -- Fire Control Instruments (FCI) will host a 16-city seminar series entitled "Meeting Survivability Code Requirements Using Integrated Mass Notification Technology" beginning in September. 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. 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," said Pete Clark, vice president of marketing for Honeywell Fire Systems.

FCI's seminars will begin in the Boston, MA metropolitan area on September 20 and end in Denver, CO on November 17.
