NFPA President & CEO Jim Pauley will deliver the virtual keynote address to kick off Siemen's Smart Infrastructure Summit & Expo on Thursday, October 1.


In his presentation, Transforming Your Fire & Life Safety Systems into the Digital AgePauley will point to historic moments in time that led to the development of codes and standards and recent catastrophic events that demonstrate the need to connect the dots on safety, as the NFPA Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem suggests.


With all the digital transformation happening in fire protection and building systems, the head of NFPA says, "The smart technologies that we are seeing in fire protection and building management systems present both opportunities for risk mitigation as well as new safety hazards to consider. Understanding and integrating digital solutions and smart technologies into the built environment is important for progress, but we cannot let innovation outpace safety."


Pauley will touch on remote testing, the IOT, cyber security, and other modern day considerations being addressed in NFPA standards. He will also discuss how NFPA is transforming so that professionals and practitioners can get NFPA codes and situational context much faster via phones, tablets and laptops.
