In a recent webinar, industry expert and fire protection engineer, Merton Bunker, discussed significant ways NFPA 72 has changed and why. The information provides not only a great way for you to learn about the changes, but how they could also affect your job.Throughout the webinar, Bunker specifically talks about key changes aimed at designers, installers and AHJs, such as:


  • How to locate and apply the new carbon monoxide detector and alarm requirements
  • How to locate and apply the new testing requirements for Energy Storage Systems (ESS)
  • How to locate new requirements for HVLS fans
  • How to identify new requirements for air-sampling smoke detectors


The recording also covers the code's new mounting height requirements for fire alarm control units, new requirements for Class N circuit protection, and new document storage requirements, and more.

2018 FPW banner - Look. Listen. Learn.
NFPA and Domino’s are teaming up for the 11th year in a row to deliver fire safety messages and pizza during Fire Prevention Week (FPW), Oct. 7 -13, 2018. To make this year’s campaign a success, we’re encouraging fire departments to join forces with their local Domino’s store to implement the campaign in their communities.
Here’s how the program works:
  • Partner with your local Domino’s store to participate in an easy-to-execute program that will promote fire safety during FPW.
  • Select a day and time period (usually 2-3 hours) to randomly choose one to three pizza orders to deliver aboard a fire engine. The participating Domino’s delivery expert will follow the fire engine in his or her car.
  • When the pizza delivery arrives, the firefighters will check the home for working smoke alarms. If the smoke alarms work, the customer’s order is free (cost absorbed by the Domino’s store). If the smoke alarms aren’t working, the fire department will replace the batteries or install fully functioning smoke alarms (cost absorbed by the fire department).
As you’ve likely heard by now, this year’s FPW campaign theme is “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware – fire can happen anywhere.” It highlights some of the most basic but critical ways people can protect themselves from fire at home, or anywhere else they might go. Partnering with Domino’s presents a fun and powerful way to reinforce this messaging.
