Did you know it's your responsibility to make sure emergency responder radios work in your building? You're at risk of not getting a certificate of occupancy for a new or newly remodeled facility if it doesn't pass the radio-frequency test required by state and local codes.
In this educational seminar*, IBS President Chip Chapman and Columbus Fire Department Battalion Chief David Ringley will review the national, state, and local requirements for public safety in-building communications, including design, equipment, budgeting, and testing.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
- All building owners, especially of high rises, hospitals, senior living facilities, performance halls, schools, factories, and warehouses
- General contractors
- Property managers
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:
- Code requirements from the National Fire Protection Association, International Fire Code, and Ohio Fire Code for in-building communications.
- Specifications for public-safety systems, including cabling, radio frequency, antennas, power, and pathways.
- New enforcement guidelines from the City of Columbus for new construction, renovation projects, and high-rise or high-hazard facilities.
