CMS Adoption of the 2012 Editions of NFPA 101 and 99 Webinar

The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has published its final rule that requires health care facilities to migrate from using the 2000 edition of NFPA 101, Life Safety Code to the 2012 edition; and mandates direct compliance with the 2012 edition of NFPA 99, Health Care Facilities Code, for the first time. This 1-hour webinar (available for free to all registered users) will broaden your overview of some of the major changes you need to comply with, so you can raise awareness in your department or organization.
