New cooking and smoke alarms technologies, as well as other smart home technologies, can all play a significant role in strengthening home fire prevention and safety. NFPA has partnered with the Vision 20/20 Project and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to host a webinar that will address these new developments and their potential impact.
Presenters include Casey Grant (NFPA), Tom Cleary (NIST) and Anthony Hamins (NIST), who will focus on:
- changes to new national standards that will require all coil-top stoves manufactured after June 2018 to incorporate technology designed to prevent stove-top fires;
- new technologies that may prove effective at preventing fires for gas stove cook tops; and
- new requirements for smoke alarms designed to help minimize the likelihood of nuisance alarms.
This webinar will take place on Thursday, August 23 at 2:00pm EST. Register today!
