Fire Protection 101: Enforcement, Inspections,
Equipment, and Maintenance for Life and Safety
The January meeting of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico will feature information critical to facility maintenance managers and engineers, building owners, property managers, or anyone who is responsible for making decisions regarding life safety.
Western States Fire Protection Company will provide an expert speaker who will educate the organization’s members on fire sprinklers, fire alarms, fire extinguishers, and fire hood systems. The focus of this information will be the basics of each of these fire protection systems, and their importance and role in maintaining a properly functioning building life safety system.
This presentation will also cover the National Fire Protection Association’s statutes 13, 72, 10, & 96, and will address standard inspection schedules and requirements. During this part of the presentation facility personnel will learn how to prepare for site visitation by local authorities and how to maintain the proper files for the occasional fire marshal or insurance company visit.
Additionally the presentation will detail the most important parts of each fire protection system and its required inspection, testing, and maintenance. These systems, if properly maintained and inspected, can become “the silent savior”. Learn how to avoid fire sprinkler flooding, alarm panel malfunctions, false alarms, improperly charged fire extinguishers, and find out about over-spaced devices or systems that may not function when needed.
Reservations are required for this meeting at 7:15 am on January 18th, 2012, at the Garduno’s Uptown Restaurant. Please reserve your place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org (preferred) or by calling 505-377-5309 to attend. Cost is $30.00 for members and $35.00 for non-members.
