Best Practices for Mass Notification System Risk Assessment
UMD FPE in collaboration with the Automatic Fire Alarm Association (AFAA) will host a seminar:
BEST PRACTICES FOR MASS NOTIFICATION SYSTEM RISK ASSESSMENT
- William E. Koffel, P.E., President & Founder, Koffel Associates, Inc.
- Larry Rietz, SET, Director at Jensen Hughes
As fire alarm systems become more advanced and their application expands beyond sounding an evacuation alarm, proper design and integration into other aspects of facility management and operations have become more important. Integrating emergency response planning and the need for and design of a mass notification system (MNS) requires a detailed risk or vulnerability analysis. The importance of this analysis has been highlighted in the expanding requirements. However, there has been changing focus and expansion of the required risk analysis and guidance of how it should be performed.
Bill Koffel and Larry Rietz have extensive experience applying and addressing risk analysis for fire alarm systems addressing both compliance and risk management.
Join us for two 90-minute sessions to review the basics of risk analysis and methods to satisfy the requirement for MNS risk analysis. Successful completion of a group assignment and quiz will qualify participants for CEO credit.
LOGISTICS: January 7 & January 28, 2021 @ 2:00 pm (EST), via Zoom
