F1_280x180x.ashxHow do you protect a Formula One racetrack in the event of an emergency? That was the question facing Hershel Lee, fire marshal of Travis County, Texas, when the new Circuit of the Americas, began construction outside Austin in 2011. In his article "Loud and Clear" in the most recent issue of NFPA Journal, Scott Sutherland describes how a mass notification system that can a communicate with as many as 150,000 people across a sprawling racetrack complex became part of the United States' first purpose-built Formula One track. To find out how it was done, turn to page 42 of the July/August issus of NFPA Journal or read the article online.
