MS07 - Accessibility Expo v05


The Accessibility Showcase will co-locate with the 2015 NFPA Conference & Expo at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois from June 22 to 25, 2015. This showcase, first begun in 2013, features products specifically designed to empower people with disabilities and their families, friends, and caregivers, as well as building managers, supervisors, and first responders to help improve not only their safety, but the quality of life for people with disabilities far beyond those specified in the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Accessibility Showcase at past NFPA Conference & Expos has been a huge success. To see a list of this year’s vendors, please click here.

“Fire and life safety are more important to people with disabilities than others because of the barriers to accessing information about the emergency and the physical barriers to evacuating within the built environment,” says Allan Fraser, senior building code specialist and staff liaison to NFPA’s presidential Disability Access Review and Advisory Committee.  DARAC was formed in the fall of 2004 to help NFPA identify existing needs and emerging issues in the disability community.  The DARAC works to deliver recommendations that need to be considered by NFPA technical committees and to identify and recommend various research agenda items that have specific application concerning access, use and safety issues in the built environment.  Beyond codes, DARAC also works to review elements of NFPA public education and outreach activities. “With each passing day, I marvel at the new technological innovations and advancements, particularly those that improve access to information, communications, and the ability of people with disabilities to be more empowered with respect to their own safety” says Fraser.

Examples of the many types of products at the Accessibility Showcase include enhanced alarming systems, directional sound devices, voice-to-text/text-to-voice devices, video phones for ASL users, power wheelchairs, accessible vehicles, signage, and accessibility training and preparedness programs for employers.

Supporting the Accessibility Expo will again be a series of conference sessions addressing one or more of the five categories of disability—mobility, vision, hearing, speech, and cognitive—and the creative, common-sense best practices and solutions available.

Educational sessions include:

  • Developing and Implementing a Building Evacuation for Safety Managers and Building Owners Program
  • America's PrepareAthon!
  • Moving Millions to Prepare
  • Emergency Action Plans: Are You Ready?
  • Occupant Evacuation Elevators: A Case Study on Design Implementation
  • Are You Ignoring 20 Percent of Your Population When Planning for Evacuations?
  • Evaluating the Remembering When Program
  • High-Rise Building Evacuation: Hold the Mayo (Clinic)

Nancy Pearce, NFPA's Senior Fire Protection Engineer, Industrial & Chemical Engineer, Hazardous Chemicals/Materials, sits down to talk about the code making process for NFPA 400.  Nancy takes us from the day of the West Fertilizer Company explosion to where the Code stands today.  To learn more about the changes to NFPA 400, read the article in NFPA Journal and then check out the education session that will be presented at NFPA Conference & Expo at McCormick Place, Chicago.

T33 Addressing Ammonium Nitrate in NFPA 400, Hazardous Materials Code will be held Tuesday, June 23, 2015 from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. Featured speakers include: Chris Connealy, Texas State Fire Marshal's Office, Elizabeth Buc, FMRL, Pam Guffain, The Fertilizer Institute, Marty Gresho, FP2 Fire, Inc., Paul Iacobucci, Akzo Nobel, and Robert James, UL LLC.

NFPA 400 has a chapter on ammonium nitrate (previously NFPA 490).  Since the tragic West, Texas, incident, the proper protection and storage of ammonium nitrate has been a focus of discussion and debate for the NFPA 400 Technical Committee on Hazardous Materials.

Issues considered included: Why do some facilities with AN burn and not detonate? When should sprinklers be required?  How should AN be classified by NFPA 400? How should emergency responders and the community be notified when AN is involved in a fire?  Is additional firefighter training needed for AN response? This presentation will describe the important issues discussed by the technical committee and the rationale behind the changes that were ultimately proposed to NFPA 400.

If you're interested in learning more and meeting these experts plan now to attend NFPA Conference & Expo.

Summer has come and gone, it seems we have skipped right over fall into winter conditions, and we have exciting new activity going on at the CFPS® Board.

David_WardIn the previous Chairman’s Update I reported how the work of our Testing Transition Committee would be of paramount focus this Board year.  That committee, with the invaluable support of the NFPA Staff has already been hard at work, and the picture is beginning to come more into focus as to how the future, digital Fire Protection Handbook will impact both our knowledge base and the testing process. In fact, this committee’s work is quickly coming to an end, as we are learning that testing on a digital database will not be an option for the future.  Instead, it appears the “new” Fire Protection Handbook will be available to CFPS candidates in a print format; enabling them to continue to bring their marked-up and flagged references with them to the testing centers.  We will know more on this in a few months, as we learn more about the content of the new handbook, and what additional references may be necessary to round-out the knowledge base. We will keep you informed. 

Another significant work of the Board right now is being done by the Eligibility Committee. We are looking at ways to capture a larger sample of the fire protection community as young professionals come out of FP degree programs and enter into the workforce.  A couple of different avenues are being studied for how best to achieve that while still maintaining our ANSI accreditation.  This group is still working in the information gathering stage, and will be formulating recommended actions based on those findings in the period between now and our next annual meeting in Chicago, in June.

NFPA reports completion of our 2014 Audit by ANSI, and we are in good standing there.  ANSI has developed a new standard by which they are measuring all programs, and as a natural result of that process there are new administrative hurdles to clear in order to stay in compliance.  Leon Katcharian, our Executive Secretary, and the rest of the first rate staff at NFPA are already at work formulating solutions to those hurdles. We look for those all to be cleared with no major concerns going forward.

From time-to-time we receive inquiries about the authority of a CFPS Certificate Holder to be able to approve and even “stamp” plans, much as a PE would. Our position has been, and continues to be that the CFPS is a professional credential, and not a license to practice.  It would effectively be illegal in the United States to represent oneself as qualified to stamp drawings based solely on the merits of holding a CFPS.  The NFPA legal department is currently having a look at the question, and will be issuing a policy statement. We realize the CFPS is an international credential, and this has led to some confusion by Certificants from other countries who wish to be cleared by us (the Board of Certified Fire Protection Specialists) to stamp plans. But because we are based in the US and are sworn to uphold US laws, we have no authority to allow such use of the credential in our name. 

CFPS_Color_200x200In closing this report I wish to reiterate the need we have each year for new candidates to seek a Director position on the Board. The Nominations Committee will be meeting in the coming quarter to lay out the timeline for the election process in the Spring.  This is a good time also for individuals considering running for the Board to give it further consideration, and talk the idea over with family members and employers.  Directors elected to the Board meet in person at least annually at the NFPA Conference & Expo®, and four times a year via teleconference as a full board. All Directors also serve on 2 to 3 committees, which normally also meet via teleconference from 1 to 3 times per year.

Best wishes for the upcoming holiday season. May it be a fire safe and joyous one for you and your families.

Best regards,

David W. Ward, CFPS
Chair, CFPS Board of Directors

Mark Stevens, CFPS



Mark Stevens is a Fire Inspector/Plans Examiner with the Maine State Fire Marshal’s Office. He lives in Oakland, a town of about 6,500 people located in the Belgrade Lakes Region of Maine.


 

Staff of 15 covers the state of Maine


 

Currently,&#0160;Mark works in&#0160;the field of fire prevention with an emphasis on code enforcement.&#0160; His major responsibilities are conducting fire and life safety inspections in all state licensed facilities ranging from hospitals and detention/correctional facilities to single family dwellings. As supervisor of the plans review section of the Maine State Fire Marshal’s Office, he also oversees the review of construction, renovation, and change-of-use plans for public buildings located in Maine. Complaints for fire and life safety code violations for any type of occupancy in the State of Maine are also reviewed by the Fire Marshal’s Office. A staff of only&#0160;fifteen people perform all of these functions (over an area of 35,000 square miles) so efficiency and professional competency are very important to the team. As a supervisor, he continues to recognize the important role that NFPA certification plays in the professional development of his staff.


 

He’s earned the following: Fire Inspector I, Fire Inspector II, Fire Plans Examiner, and Fire Protection Specialist


 

“My last certification exam was in 2009 at the University of Maine at Farmington online testing center. It was at UMF that I took the Certified Fire Protection Specialist Exam. NFPA certification has played a very important role in my professional development. Online testing at a local test site was the major reason for taking the exam at the University of Maine. I believe that the level of accessibility to NFPA certification programs is a very positive aspect and offers the flexibility needed to pursue certification. State partnership agencies also help to expand access to NFPA certification programs. As the State partnership agency for the State of Maine we are striving to reinforce the importance of NFPA certification programs for fire service organizations within the state. Fire departments that employ trained fire inspectors are able to provide a greater degree of safety to the citizens that they serve through proactive methods of fire protection.”


 

“NFPA certification has provided a credible and recognized measure of job related competency for me. Earning the NFPA Certified Fire Inspector I, Fire Inspector II, Fire Plan Examiner, and Fire Protection Specialist has definitely been a positive part of my career advancement. The fire service has been trending towards standards-based training for quite some time and NFPA certification provides a means of demonstrating professional competency for fire inspectors, code enforcement officials, and other fire protection related professions. NFPA certification plays an important role in the professional development of many fire prevention and code enforcement organizations. This role is likely to increase as more organizations seek tangible evidence that their personnel are competent in understanding and enforcing adopted codes and standards.”
