Gamewell-FCI Offers Free Sessions Focusing On Design Of Mass Notification Systems

Gamewell-FCI by Honeywell will host a series of free educational seminars throughout the U.S., covering the design, operation and integration of effective emergency communications/mass notification systems for any public, private or military facility. Essential system elements and new technologies related to the latest requirements established by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Department of Defense will be discussed. Attendees will also receive CPD (Continuing Professional Development) credits.

The half-day seminars will explain the structure and composition of a true ECS (emergency communication system) together with its integration of indoor, outdoor and personal wireless devices for facility, campus and worldwide communications. Experts in the field of emergency communications will share practical methods and real-life applications to help attendees overcome emergency preparedness obstacles and create feasible solutions specific to their own environments. Special guest speakers will include Thomas Von Essen, former commissioner of the New York Fire Department 1996-2002, and Jack Poole P.E., fire protection engineer and member of the NFPA 72 Technical Committee.

All presentations and take-home materials are geared toward the needs of today's architects, engineers, facility owners/managers and AHJs (authorities having jurisdiction) associated with civilian or military applications.
