Telgian Engineering & Consulting Chief Engineering Officer Tracey Bellamy will act as a panelist for the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Considerations for Warehouse Fire Safety webinar, slated for Wednesday, November 4, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. (EDT).
The webinar is a must-attend event for contractors, installers, engineers, facility managers and code officials. Bellamy, along with several other experts in the industry, will offer engineering and design perspective, as well as ITM insight for large enterprises.
The roundtable panel discussion will include discussion of key points such as how warehouses are typically specified and built, the importance of commodity classification, design and limitations of ESFR sprinklers, management of change and the importance of ITM.
The Considerations for Warehouse Fire Safety webinar is especially timely as, in recent months, we have seen multiple large-scale warehouse fires including the explosion and blaze in Beirut, Lebanon where 2750 tons of improperly stored ammonium nitrate was destabilized by hot work nearby. The resulting catastrophic blast killed at least 177, injured about 6,000, caused an estimated 10–15 billion (USD) in property damage, and left approximately 300,000 homeless.
