NFPA is winding down a week of meetings at its conference center in Quincy, MA with members of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Committee TC 268 Sustainable Cities and Communities.

 

Representatives from France, Germany, Britain, Japan, China, Brazil, Sweden, Canada, and the US gathered to discuss global standards efforts related to smart and sustainable cities. More than seven subcommittees and working groups have been taking part in this collaborative effort.

 

The group has been developing standards for cities and communities to assess and improve efficiency, resiliency, and sustainability through infrastructure, management systems, and data. The five-day program, facilitated by Greg Cade, Director of Government Affairs for NFPA and Meghan Housewright, NFPA’s Associate General Counsel, wraps up tomorrow.iso meeting blog.JPG

 

Highlights of the week include:

 

• Creating standards to implement a management system standard (MSS) for community sustainable development.

• Developing City Indicators, which cover city functioning and quality of life, as well as indicators for resilience and smart cities.  

• Developing a descriptive framework for cities to identify the different elements and functions of a city into layers and components.

• Building a maturity model for “smart community infrastructure.”

• Establishing standards for “smart transportation,” with a focus on compact cities, park-and-ride systems, and battery-powered bus systems.

 

The ISO meetings brought together global stakeholders interested in sharing knowledge, ideas and consensus-based standards expertise to support growing international interest in smart and sustainable cities.

From the article on Motion Picture Production Hazards:  "An outdoor set built on an open stage ... Such construction near a studio building constitutes an exposure hazard. Note that the camera man is smoking."

 

From the NFPA Quarterly v. 15, no. 3, 1922

"The tremendous growth of the motion picture industry has been one of the commercial marvels of the past decade....

As has been the case with most new rapidly growing industries, there has been a period when the development of safeguards has not kept pace with the creation of new hazards...

While the film is regarded as the first hazard of the motion picture industry, the rapid development of large scale production has introduced other studio hazards which are treated in some detail in this article."
