Registration has just opened for the Fire Protection Research Foundation’s Suppression, Detection and Signaling Research and Applications Symposium (SUPDET 2013). It will take place February 26 through March 1, 2013 at Doubletree Orlando at SeaWorld, Orlando, FL
This is the 17th annual SUPDET, and it features more than 25 papers addressing the latest developments, advances and research. Some of the topics included are detection, sprinkler protection and clean agent technology. Attendees will be able to choose between the Detection and Signaling Program or the Suppression Program.
In addition, a special Suppression Research Charrette is being planned for February 27, which is open to all registrants. There are several interactive sessions focused on solutions to protection challenges, including an examination of water mist as an equivalent protection solution to sprinklers for selected suppression scenarios.
Aimed at professionals in the fire alarm, suppression and emergency communication industries, the symposium also makes attendees eligible to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
