University of Maryland and NFPA Host Inaugural Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem Symposium to Address Complex Fire Safety Challenges in Today's Built Environment.
As the world continues to evolve and transform, there are both new and lingering challenges that impact fire and life safety; many examples that point to gaps, cracks and weaknesses in our safety system that otherwise should protect communities. The NFPA Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem identifies the components that must work together to minimize these risks and help prevent loss, injuries and death from fire, electrical and other hazards.
In September, the University of Maryland Department of Fire Protection Engineering and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) will host their inaugural symposium to discuss the principles of the NFPA Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem and its application to address today's fire safety issues. The symposium brings together top researchers, academics, risk managers, code officials, engineers, architects, fire service personnel, public policy makers, and urban planners who will present, collaborate and apply learnings of the Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem to the modern-day built environment.
