This week, representatives from the fire service in Mexico will convene at the 13th Annual NFPA Mexico Fire Expo, the premiere event for fire and life safety in Mexico. The conference is held in conjunction with Expo Seguridad and Expo Seguridad Industrial, and brings together fire professionals, installers, consulting engineers and service providers interested in purchasing and installing fire and life safety products. The goal is to provide stakeholders in Mexico with the necessary educational information, networking opportunities and solutions they need to protect property and manage safe, successful and resilient buildings, campuses, factories and complexes.
The trio of complimentary events attracted nearly 17,500 attendees last year, with more than 5,300 interested in new products and services related to fire protection. The interrelated industry conference has had a history of fostering great synergies and forward-thinking perspective among attendees. More than 400 exhibitors will showcase products, new technologies and services at the conference aimed at keeping people and property safe from fire and related hazards.
For the first time, NFPA code training sessions have been added to the agenda, making it a single, all-encompassing event. Instructors will deliver three days of training before the Expo begins in the late afternoon each day. Training on NFPA 13: Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems will focus on locating and applying installation requirements to help ensure the proper functioning of water-based sprinkler systems. Attendees will also learn about NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code so they can navigate, locate and interpret code provisions and apply them in their daily work. They will also learn how to improve the quality of signaling system applications as an integral part of fire protection.
NFPA’s Mexico Fire Expo runs March 14-16 at Citibanmex Center in Mexico City.
