Paul Dunphy, Harvard University, NFPA 3 and NFPA 4

Blog Post created by Sean Ryan Employee on Feb 20, 2015

Paul Dunphy was at NFPA HQ today to go on tape on the subject of NFPA 3 and NFPA 4. Specifically, he was here to talk about our upcoming pay-per-view seminar on NFPA 3 and NFPA 4. From the moment Paul pulled up to NFPA's building #1, I realized  he is serious when it comes to these two topics. As you can see in the photo, his license plate reads "NFPA 4." " I talk the talk and I walk the walk when it comes to commissioning and integrated testing of fire protection systems because I ride down the Southeast Expressway of Massachusetts every day with that emblazoned on my car." Paul Dunphy 

Dunphy is an electrical inspector and Coordinator of Compliance at Harvard University with  over 25 years of experience in facility management. He arrived at Harvard 14 years ago with a mission in mind. He wanted to use his experience managing buildings in Downtown Boston to make Harvard's buildings and campus as safe as possible. 

"With thousands of students, faculty and visitors from all over the world on Harvard properties every day I need to make sure all of our life safety and fire protection systems are working properly and in unison together." In addition to the license plate indicating his commitment, Paul is also a principal member of the NFPA technical committee and has been a proponent of commissioning and integrated testing of fire protection systems for many years.

Paul will talk about his experience at Harvard University on March 11th and March 18th when he teams up with NFPA's Jacqueline Wilmot, Fire Protection Engineer, to discuss the importance of NFPA 3 and NFPA 4. Wilmot is the liaison to the aforementioned technical committees and the co-host for the event.
