Advisory Panel members invited for new Foundation project on separation distances of hazardous materials

Blog Post created by laurenbackstrom Employee on Apr 10, 2013

Separation distances are specified in many NFPA codes and standards and have been developed over a number of years with varying technical basis. The Fire Protection Research Foundation has initiated a project to revisit of the historical basis of selected requirements, and develop information and guidance which may inform a sound technical basis for adjusting these distances. 

We are seeking those with an interest and expertise in this field to serve on the project advisory panel, which will provide input, review and guidance to the project. If you have a background in hazard assessment, code enforcement related to hazardous materials and NFPA 400 or have other expertise to bring to the topic and are interested in serving, please respond to kalmand@nfpa.org
