The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) announced its Fire & Life Safety Conference will take place December 12-14. The meeting is scheduled to be held in Orlando, Fla. at the Hilton at Walt Disney World Resort and will include three days of educational sessions, as well as two days of post-conference seminars.
More than 60 education sessions will be presented for attendees to learn the latest on fire and life safety code topics and receive continuing education units (CEUs). Presentations will be led by NFPA staff experts and technical committee members and will be organized in four tracks – building and life safety, detection and alarm, fire suppression, and codes and standards.
The conference program includes presentations on recent Fire Protection Research Foundation projects, how September 11th and the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire affected high rise design, and a panel discussion on emerging code issues.
