NFPA to host fire and life safety conference

Conference to offer more than 50 educational tracks on various fire and life safety topics


The National Fire Protection Association announced Monday that it will be hosting a new fire and life safety conference later this year in Orlando, Fla.

According to a statement issued by the organization, the conference, which is scheduled to take place December 13-17, will feature three days of educational sessions and two days of post-conference seminars.

More than 50 educational tracks will be presented by NFPA staff experts and committee members during the three-day conference, which will provide attendees with the latest information on building and life safety, detection and alarm systems, fire suppression, as well as codes and standards. The post-conference seminars will focus on such topics as fire protection concepts, sprinkler hydraulics 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."
