The Fire Protection Research Foundation invites you to take advantage of its free webinars. In 2015, six webinars will be offered to all those interested at no cost.

The first webinar of the year, to be scheduled shortly, is entitled Assessment of Hazardous Voltage/Current in Marinas, Boatyards and Floating Buildings. Delivered by John Adey, President of American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC), the webinar will present the results of the recently completed Foundation report. The goal of this project was to identify and summarize available information that clarifies the problem of hazardous voltage/current in marinas, boatyards and floating buildings, and to develop a mitigation strategy to address identified hazards.

The next webinar, Wildland Fire Ignition Pathways with Dr. Michael Gollner from University of Maryland, is scheduled for April 21, 12:30-2 pm.

Other webinars:

  • June – Smoke Alarm Nuisance Source Characterization

  • October – TBA
  • December – ESFRs and Obstructions
