Patrick Tesche, Telgian’s Vice President of Compartmentalization Services (Firestop) was recently appointed Chair for the International Firestop Council Inspectors Committee.
Created in October 2012, the Inspectors Committee gives inspectors a chance to voice their opinion on the implementation of any new or modified codes and standards. “There was a critical, unmet need for inspectors to develop a method in order to band together and create a stronger, unified voice,” Tesche said. “I’m pleased that the International Firestop Council has provided us this opportunity.”
The International Firestop Council (IFC) is a global nonprofit association of inspectors, installers, distributors, and manufacturers, as well as other key stakeholders who are involved in passive fire protection materials and systems. The IFC provides broad-based education, information, resources, and procedures regarding firestop system selection, performance, installation and inspection to the construction and code-enforcement communities.
