Fire, life safety, and security services industry leader Telgian Engineering & Consulting recently announced that President Leonard Ramo was selected to serve on the SFPE Standards Making Committee on Performance-Based Fire Safety Design.
The SFPE Engineering Standard on Performance-Based Fire Protection will define the process for implementing a performance-based approach in the design and / or assessment of building fire safety within both prescriptive and performance-based code systems.
The Standard will be used in the development of alternate or equivalent means of protection to the prescriptive code requirements, especially in cases where no specific building and fire regulations apply. In addition, the Standard will be used where protection features are intended or desired to exceed the applicable building and fire regulations.
This Standard will also provide a framework for preparing a performance-based design for use in the regulatory process including required technical documentation and design submittals, as well as future reviews of existing conditions subject to the authority having jurisdiction.
As a member of the SFPE Standards Making Committee on Performance-Based Fire Safety Design, Ramo brings over 25 years of industry experience as a practicing fire protection engineer, consultant, and executive to the table. And, in addition to his appointment to this committee, Ramo is a member of the SFPE Committee on Outreach and Advocacy (COA), and the past president of the Central Gulf Coast Chapter of SFPE. He has also served on the SPFE 2019 Nominating Committee.
An internationally recognized industry professional, Ramo also plays an integral role in fire protection international codes and standards development by serving on select National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) committees. He currently serves as a Principal Member of the Committee on Standard for Water Tanks for Private Fire Protection, NFPA 22, an Alternate Member of Committee on Life Safety, Mercantile and Business Occupancies, NFPA 101, and an Alternate Member of Committee on Life Safety, Mercantile and Business Occupancies, NFPA 5000.
Ramo’s professional accreditations include registration as a Professional Engineer (PE) in all 50 U.S. States, District of Columbia and select Territories, as well as P. Eng. in select Canadian Provinces. Ramo is a Certified Fire Protection Specialist (CFPS) and holds a U.S. Department of Homeland Security CVI certification.
