May 20, 2021 – On Tuesday, June 22, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is hosting “Keeping You Informed: The Big Wide World of Building and Life Safety”, a one-day program that addresses some of today’s leading building and life safety issues, opportunities, and challenges. The program is part of the association’s virtual 125th Anniversary Conference Series, which replaces the traditional in-person 2021 NFPA Conference & Expo and runs from May 2021 through March 2022.
“This is a year of celebration and education,” said NFPA President & CEO Jim Pauley. “We created a year-long virtual conference series to be able to offer a more tailored and personalized experience for participants. From comprehensive workshops to discussions on the latest advancements in fire technology, what participants learn in these sessions will improve safety around the globe.”
Serving as the second program in the conference series, “Keeping You Informed: The Big Wide World of Building and Life Safety” will cover a wide range of topics that facility managers, AHJs, building owners, code officials and enforcers, among others, are facing - from construction site fires, remote virtual inspections (RVI), and potential fire risks posed by facilities that grow, process and extract cannabis, to emerging technologies like drones and 3D printing. Additional key sessions will provide updates to the new 2021 editions of NFPA 101®, Life Safety Code® and NFPA 99, Health Care Facilities Code.
Attendees can tune in live to earn up to five credit hours (0.5 CEU) and earn an additional five credit hours on-demand for a total of 10 credit hours (1.0 CEU). Alternatively, the content can all be viewed on-demand for a total of 10 credit hours (1.0 CEU). All programs will be available on-demand for up to a year starting on June 22.
