Fire Suppression Systems for the 21st Century

Tuesday, January 22, 2013. RSVP below.
(Note date changed from January 15)

Meeting new environmental regulations is a challenge in and of itself, but add the complexity of managing legacy Halon FPS or other inert clean agent gas extinguishing systems and you are left with only a few expensive solutions until now.

This presentation will discuss hybrid nitrogen-water fire protection systems (FPS) for areas that do not have room integrity or expensive replacements of halogenated or inerting gases after a discharge. Another consideration in selection a fire protection system is the use of "green products" some of which are eligible for LEED points for new and retrofit construction projects and those approved for incorporating incipient fire suppression systems.

Speaker Frank Broidy, president of Fire & Pump Service Group has over 34 years of fire protection service, installing and maintaining large and small systems throughout the west coast region will explain his first-hand installation experience and the cost effectiveness of new alternatives for machinery, co-generation, glove boxes, biological, micro electrical and industrial laboratory, data , UPS, control rooms, server rooms, clean rooms and nucleonic fire suppression.

Mr. Broidy's experience includes design/build engineering, code interpretation for NFPA standard 805 and DOE 1066, maintaining the DOE Certifications for National Nuclear Security Administration, NNSA NQA-1 2008-2009 QG 1, internal and vendor audits for NQA-1 ASL and the DOE approved Master Approved Suppliers List (MASL) suppliers list. He is a member of the ASPE Technical Committee.
