Training Presentation

We will have NFPA Regional Director of the Northwest Office, Gary Honold give a presentation on NFPA 72. This one-hour session will focus on NFPA 72, National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code. Attendees will learn about NFPA standards and the standard development process. The attendees will learn about the scope/purpose of the document, and key components of fire alarm systems. There will also be information on updates from the previous edition to the next edition, significant changes to the first draft, where the document is in the revision process, and how the attendees can engage in the process and provide their input.

He also assists his constituents with technical questions and training on the codes and standards by working with the NFPA subject matter experts and Staff Liaisons on the technical committees for each document.

Mr. Honold is a Certified Fire Protection Specialist with over ten years of code enforcement and fire investigation experience.
