Telgian’s Chief Engineering Officer Tracey Bellamy will present the Fire Smarts Introduction to Special Hazard Fire Suppression Systems Webinar on September 12, 2019 from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm Eastern (including Q&A time). This webinar provides an overview of the available special hazard fire suppression systems.
Special hazard systems are essential to the protection of high-value, sensitive environments where the intrusion of fire, smoke and water put vital assets at risk. These include fuel-pump islands, computer server and telecommunication switching rooms, and critical document storage, each of which require special hazards system protection.
This presentation provides an overview of the available special hazard fire suppression systems such as:
* pre-action sprinkler systems
* water mist systems
* water spray systems
* clean agent/inert gas systems
* CO2 systems
* dry/wet chemical systems
* foam/foam-water systems
* hybrid water-inert gas systems
In addition to the systems listed, there are also a number of manufacturer-specific suppression systems which will be addressed.
During the webinar, participants will learn the benefits and suppression means for each system type, as well as what to consider when selecting the appropriate system. The discussion will include evaluating operational performance objectives and key metrics in order to determine the appropriate balance of performance versus the installation cost of the system.
Introduction to Special Hazard Fire Suppression Systems Webinar Learning Objectives
- Know the full range of available special hazard fire suppression systems and associated NFPA Standard
- Understand the appropriate applications and benefits for each special hazard suppression system type
- Learn the various mechanisms of suppression for each type of special hazard suppression system
- Explain the need to establish responsible performance objectives as part of the system type selection process
Introduction to Special Hazard Fire Suppression Systems, Certificate of Completion
Each participant registered, attending the full live training webinar or viewing the post-live recorded on-demand webinar, will receive a Certificate of Completion. This certificate will include the participants name, training subject, date, number of training hours completed and the Fire Smarts name, address and phone number.
Certificates will comply with International Code Council (ICC) CEU requirements for ICC approved training courses. Fire Smarts is an approved training provider of the ICC. ICC CEU’s are assigned based on 0.1 CEU per training contact hour.
Certificates can be used as supporting documentation for CPD points required for NICET certification. This applies to the “Additional Education” section of NICET Policy #30 on Continuing Professional Development that allows for CPD points for education to advance, broaden and enhance technical knowledge and job skills.
In addition, certificates can be used as supporting documentation for credit hours required for re-certification as part of the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code (UCC) program. Continuing education credit is determined as one credit per training contact hour.
Certificates can also be used as supporting documentation for continuing education (CE) hours for Texas Commission on Fire Protection certifications. Fire Smarts is a continuing education source under “Nationally Recognized Training Providers.” Continuing education hours are determined as one CE hour per training contact hour.
