Fire and Life Safety Upgrades for Fenway Park and the Statue of Liberty

 

The latest issue of the NFPA Journal, the official magazine of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), focuses on recent fire and life safety upgrades to Fenway Park and the Statue of Liberty; NFPA codes and standards played a significant role.

These upgrades will make both landmarks safer for millions of visitors each year while maintaining their important historical aspects. Fenway Park’s fire alarm, life safety and sprinkler systems were upgraded while the Statue of Liberty received enhancements to its staircases and foundation.

NFPA President, James M. Shannon, discusses the real implications of the safety upgrades made at both locations in the issue.

In the accompanying video (see below) NFPA Journal staff writer Fred Durso discusses his feature “A Better Plan” focusing on emergency planning and management in the face of the deadly Indiana State Fair outdoor stage collapse.

NFPA is a worldwide leader in fire, electrical, building, and life safety. The mission of the international nonprofit organization founded in 1896 is to reduce the worldwide burden of fire and other hazards on the quality of life by providing and advocating consensus codes and standards, research, training, and education.
