Fire Protection Engineering to Host Free Webinar
Applying reliable smoke-detection systems in industrial applications has been a challenge because of varying environmental conditions. As the number of fire-detection products increases, the question of choice emerges. Selecting the most appropriate form of fire detection for the application and environment is the first step in reducing fire risk. With a host of detectors available and many claiming to be suitable for harsh and difficult environments, how can a consumer know which claims are true? Fire Protection Engineering will be hosting a Webinar, "Evolution of Fire Detection in Industrial Applications: A New Benchmark," on March 9 at 2 p.m. ET. The free Webinar will discuss the challenges of smoke detection in industrial applications and the evolution of air-sampling smoke detection as a technology for reliable early warning in harsh and dirty environments. Attendees can earn 0.1 continuing-education unit for participating in the entire Webinar. [MORE]
