Obstructions to ESFR and CMSA Sprinklers
Victoria B Valentine, PE
Early suppression fast response sprinklers (ESFR) and control mode specific application (CMSA) sprinklers are commonly used in protecting storage scenarios. These sprinklers undergo different product testing in order to achieve their listing. With the large volume of water that comes from each of these sprinklers they are extremely sensitive to obstructions. Fixtures, structural members, and more, may or may not be considered obstructions to sprinkler discharge. This seminar will explore the rules for positioning ESFR and CMSA sprinklers when obstructions are present.

Implementing New ITM Procedures from the 2014 Edition of NFPA 25
The 2014 edition of NFPA 25 is currently only adopted by a handful of jurisdictions as the process of updating codes and standards can take a few years or more. With that in mind you can expect that many states and local AHJ’s will soon begin enforcing the requirements of the current edition of the standard. To comply with the 2014 edition of NFPA 25, changes in the process of inspecting and testing will need to take place. Whether it is as simple as conducting a valve status test instead of a main drain test, or the totally new practice of testing diesel fuel quality for fire pumps, everything from contract terms and conditions to how long an inspector should plan to be onsite will be effected. In this seminar, we will discuss some of the more significant of those changes and how to prepare for them.

Updating ICC Codes - Moving from the 2009 to the 2015 Edition
Jeffrey M Hugo, CBO
National code development often outpaces the actual code adoption in many jurisdictions. It is not uncommon for a community to be two or three editions behind the latest published edition. When it comes time to update, many questions arise about the new requirements. This course is designed to provide answers to those questions on what is new in the code. This course will also address those communities that have the older editions of the ICC codes and what to expect in the 2015 edition. There are many updates on fire sprinkler requirements, fire pump installation, fire department connections, and much more. The 2009 and 2012 edition codes to the 2015 edition will be reviewed while providing many visual representations, handouts and discussion to assist the fire sprinkler contractor and code official on the updates.
