Smart Fire System of the Future

Discussion created by kathleenalmand Employee on Jun 4, 2017

Next on my agenda at NFPA's conference busy program around using data to reduce risk. 

Christina Francis from P&G is focusing on reducing risk in industrial properties. Her portfolio includes production and storage facilities around the world. She is presenting her vision for data informed inspection testing and maintenance of fire protection features.   Her focus is on efficiency of inspection- resources aimed where they are needed. 

She also showed how fire protection system  data can inform emergency response- providing location data and the status of control. For Christina, whose global facilities often are located in areas with limitations on local suppression response resources, Smart Systems can have a big impact on loss reduction.
