On of Conference & Expo’s most anticipated tracks, on codes and standards, will include over a dozen educational sessions meant to impart the best applications for NFPA codes and standards, and to keep attendees updated on the recent updates and changes.
Attendees should be sure to catch “Food Trucks: On the Road to Regulation.” In this session, sponsored by the International Fire Marshall Association, the president of the National Food Truck Association, a deputy fire commissioner and NFPA staff will offer their diverse perspectives on the various elements of food truck regulation.
Tragic chemical explosions at facilities in West, TX and Tianjin, China remind us of the importance of proper chemical use, storage and handling. “The Practical Application of NFPA 400, Hazardous Materials Code, to Prevent Incidents at Chemical Facilities” session aims to give attendees a better grasp on how to utilize NFPA 400 to prevent similar incidents. “NFPA 921, Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigations, Construction Components, Fire Spread, and Detailed Reporting” will examine how various aspects of building construction affect fire spread. Speakers from the Clark County Fire Department, SEA Limited and NFPA will discuss what fire investigators need to keep in mind when evaluating fire spread and reporting their findings.
In “Lessons learned from Starting a New Standard,” NFPA’s Brian O’Connor and Larson Performance Consulting, LLC’s Dean Larson, will go over the process for developing an NFPA standard, as demonstrated by the development of the new NFPA 1616, Standard for Mass Evacuation and Sheltering. The presentation will examine the role of various NFPA procedures in creating a new standard, and delve into the main themes of the document itself.
