    The Florida Fire Marshals and Inspector's Association Presents

    Emerging Trends for Fire Service Personnel - 4 hr.  

    The hazards and processes exposed to first responders is ever changing. New products and processes are continuously being introduced. The best way to avoid injury to the public and first responders is to become aware of what these emerging items are and to begin to explore what they are and how they might effect responding personnel.

    Examples of issues on the horizon that we will be discussing are; Light Weight Steel Construction,  Inflatable Spray Booths, Power over the Ethernet (PoE) NFPA 72, Internet of Things (IoT) NFPA 72, and Smoke Alarm standards update requirements. Additionally, its important for first responders to know how they can find out more information, therefore we’ll spend time understanding resources available to them.

    The class has been approved for four (4) hours of CEUs for Fire Code Administrator, Fire Safety Inspector I&II, Fire Service Instructor I,II and III.
