Two free seminars on BS 5839-1:2017 will be available to attendees for this year’s FIM Expo, which takes place on Thursday 4 October at Doncaster Racecourse. The seminars will be presented by Fire Industry Association (FIA) technical manager Will Lloyd.
The seminars will cover the changes to BS 5839-1:2017 since the 2013 version and provide technical insight, as well as afford an opportunity for attendees to ask questions. Attendees will be eligible to gain a Continuing Professional Development certificate.
Discover and learn about multi-sensors in escape routes, L2 and L3 systems, the use of manual Call Point covers, the ‘place of ultimate safety’ and how this affects placement of Call Points, communication with the Fire and Rescue Service, staff alarms, video fire detectors, types of fire detectors and their selection, the spacing and siting of automatic fire detectors, the siting of optical beam smoke detectors, power supplies and cabling and more.
The Expo is being run by the FIA and boasts a range of fire detection and alarm manufacturers in attendance.
The morning seminar is at 11.00 am, with the afternoon seminar beginning at 2.00 pm. Doors to the Expo open at 9.30 am and the event closes at 4.00 pm. Luncheon is free. Attendees will have many opportunities to network with other fire sector professionals.
