Fire Protection 101:  FMANM
Class Graduated with Honors in August

Brian Garrity and Jason Carter with Johnson Controls Fire Protection hosted a lunch and learn for members and guests of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico on a hot August day in a cool downtown distillery, providing relevant information on five important aspects of protecting your facility from fire-related incidents.  The JCI team explored in depth the "5 Ws" of fire and life safety maintenance.

The first "W" is the why of risk management aimed at minimizing injury or death to people, and secondly at loss prevention to mitigate damage or destruction to buildings and property.  The second "W" investigated who is responsible for this mitigation and which agencies they are responsible to.  The next "W" took into account where inspections must take place in the facility—inside, outside, even company owned vehicles and warehouse equipment. The fourth "W" was what: What do you need to know?  What do you need to test? And the fifth "W" was when, with the JCI team breaking down the daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, and annual inspections (all the way to a 50-year plan) that by law must be performed.

General consensus of the crowd agreed that if you work in any type of facility, the information provided was both eye-opening and extremely relevant towards understanding what management must do to protect the lives and property of employees, customers, visitors, and guests, both invited and uninvited.
