NOTIFIER by Honeywell recently announced a series of free seminars on essential design and planning concepts and the most significant codes, standards, and legislation related to life-safety and emergency communications systems (ECS).

Intended for facility owners, security directors, architects/engineers, and authorities having jurisdiction, the half-day seminars will include lunch and a certificate worth four continuing professional-development credits.

Consulting engineer and National Fire Protection Association technical-committees member Jack Poole, PE, will demonstrate how to perform a thorough facility risk analysis and discuss the impact of such an analysis on the design of an ECS. Also, he will explain the impacts of UL 2572, Standard for Control and Communication Units for Mass Notification Systems, and the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act on ECS requirements and design specifications.

Special guest Thomas Von Essen, former commissioner of the New York City Fire Department, will join technical experts from NOTIFIER to discuss real-world fire-alarm and ECS applications, along with the latest legislation requirements for carbon-monoxide detection and alerts.

The seminars will be held:

• March 20 in Baltimore.

• March 22 in Norcross, Ga.

• April 24 in Chicago.

• April 26 in St. Louis.
