 WEBINAR: Challenges of Cold Storage Fire Protection


Overview: The May Minnesota Chapter of SFPE event will be brought to you again via webinar! This is a free event to attend for members and nonmembers, please feel free to forward to those who may be interested in attending.

Effective fire protection in cold storage occupancies is a multifaceted challenge.  It requires a deep understanding on the fire risk posed by the contents you are seeking to protect and the methods you choose to store them.  A systems approach - the right valves, gas supply, detection, water delivery, and automatic sprinkler design - are critical elements to assuring successful and effective protection.  This program aims to explore each of these areas and provide insight into the decision-making process that will aid you in making the best choice to protect your clients businesses.
