Navigating the Storage Requirements
(FP10600) 4 CEUs   (WI#16961) 4 Credit Hrs
Instructor: John Corso
Storage occupancies present unique challenges to sprinkler system design and installation.  NFPA 13 has complex and varying rules for the protection of stored commodities.   This fast paced and interactive seminar will explore these requirements as they are related to types of commodities, storage configurations and special storage situations.   The participant will be guided through a series of decisions and requirements that lead to compliance with NFPA 13 and ensure the system will operate properly when needed. 

The Two Sides of Plan Review
(FP10602) 4 CEUs   (WI#16962) 4 Credit Hrs
Instructor: James Lake
When you submit a set of sprinkler plans, do you ever wonder what that person on the other side of the counter is thinking?  AHJs have one perspective and contractors another.  The best way to facilitate a smooth and efficient transition from submittal through approval is to understand the perspective of the person opposite you in the process.   This open forum session will be a facilitated discussion with a speaker panel consisting sprinkler contractors and authorities having jurisdiction.  We will explore the challenges in the plan review process and the opportunities to develop a working relationship that expedites the process and meets the needs of both sides.


1:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Special Installation Topics
(FP10603) 4 CEUs   (WI#16963) 4 Credit Hrs
Instructor: Cecil Bilbo
Dealing with cloud ceilings, small openings to concealed spaces, sprinkler under obstructions and sprinkler spray pattern shadow areas are a few of the issues that the Technical Committee on Sprinkler System Installation wrestled with during the development of the next edition of NFPA 13 and did not always come to a conclusive requirement for the standard.  This presentation, geared toward sprinkler layout technicians, fire protection engineers, architects and code enforcers, will probe into the background of these issues, why they are important for fire professionals to understand and why they are so problematic for the committee as well as offer some potential solutions.


ITM for the Building Owners
(FP10604) 4 CEUs   (WI#16964) 4 Credit Hrs
Instructor: Jason Webb
The building owner is the single most important individual in the inspection, testing and maintenance of fire protection systems.  NFPA 25, Standard of Inspection Testing and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems contains numerous and detailed requirements that are the responsibility of the building owner.  Yet many building owners are not familiar with these requirements or with the systems in their building. Through discussion of the administrative chapters (1-4) and the systems chapters (5-12) of NFPA this seminar will provide the attendee with guidance on developing and continuing an effective inspection, testing and maintenance program.

REGISTRATION FEE: FREE for AHJs/Non AHJs: $125 (For One or Two Seminars, One Morning, One Afternoon)
