2013 NFPA 72® Designing Mass Notification Systems 2-Day Seminar


Maximize public safety. Update your knowledge to make sure you’re prepared to design mass notification systems that comply with requirements in the 2013 NFPA 72®.

Planning and designing top-quality Mass Notification Systems (MNS) requires a clear understanding of the origin and growing importance of MNS, system complexities, and the latest edition of NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code. Developed by an NFPA 72 Emergency Communication Systems (ECS) Committee Member and renowned industry expert, the new 2013 NFPA 72 Designing Mass Notification Systems 2-Day Seminar covers the key points and considerations involved in MNS design and installation, including the relationships between risk assessments, emergency response plans, and MNS.

This interactive seminar features hands-on activities that provide a solid grasp of NFPA 72 application, with classroom discussion about the relevant Code requirements. Professionals involved primarily in the sound and communications industry will get up-to-speed on MNS challenges and NFPA 72-compliant installation, while MNS professionals will learn more about audio technology and intelligibility issues.

Upon completion you should be able to:

  • Identify the qualifications for MNS design
  • Identify the component systems that make up and are affected by NFPA 72’s Chapter 24: Emergency Communications Systems
  • Understand how Chapter 24 interreacts with other NFPA 72 chapters
  • Identify the system and design components that impact intelligibility
  • Understand the differences between system survivability, reliability, and robustness
  • Know the components of a Code-compliant message, including length and clarity
  • Match the type of MNS using the code defined layer concept given a variety of examples
  • Identify the appropriate speaker for a given environment
  • Select the appropriate amp size for a given speaker demand
  • Determine the feasibility of a wireless two-way system in lieu of a wired system

Who Will Benefit:

Administrators, facility directors, fire alarm and emergency communications systems designers, professionals involved in the sound and communication industry, electrical contractors, architects, auditors, and project managers
