Telgian Engineering & Consulting recently announced that President Leonard Ramo was selected to serve on the NFPA 1: Fire Code Correlating Committee. NFPA 1 advances fire and life safety for the public and first responders, as well as the protection of property, by providing a comprehensive, integrated approach to fire code regulation and hazard management.
NFPA 1 provides fire code officials with a comprehensive package of criteria to routinely ensure public safety. The code addresses minimum requirements for building construction, operation, and maintenance, fire department access, and hazardous materials necessary to establish a reasonable level of fire safety and property protection in both new and existing buildings.
The NFPA 1 Fire Code Correlating Committee has primary responsibility for documents in the Fire Prevention Code, including appropriate administrative provisions, that are used with the National Fire Code for the installation, operation, and maintenance of structures and premises, providing safety to life and property from fire and explosion.
“It is an honor to be appointed to work with the NFPA 1 Fire Code Correlating Committee. Since 1896, NFPA has been dedicated to improving the safety of buildings and their occupants,” says Ramo. “I look forward to the opportunity to use my experience and insight into the industry, to contribute to the committee and its continued success.”
As an internationally recognized industry professional, Ramo brings over 25 years of industry experience as a practicing fire protection engineer, consultant, and executive to the table. In addition to the NFPA 1 Fire Code Correlating Committee (and the other), he plays an integral role in fire protection international codes and standards development by serving on other committees. He currently serves as a Principal Member of the Committee on Standard for Water Tanks for Private Fire Protection, NFPA 22, ** NFPA 400**, is an Alternate Member of Committee on Life Safety, Mercantile and Business Occupancies, NFPA 101, and is an Alternate Member of Committee on Life Safety, Mercantile and Business Occupancies, NFPA 5000.

He is the past president of the Central Gulf Coast Chapter of SPFE as well, and a member of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME).
