Building on the success of the 2016 Fire Protection Seminar Series, ORR Protection is hosting an encore webinar series that can be attended from the comfort of your own home or office. This series will steer a group of discussions on current problems and solutions in Fire Protection, lay the groundwork for a basic understanding of Fire Alarm Systems, and provide an outlook for the future of Fire Protection technology.
Leading these webinars will be Fire Protection Expert Lee Kaiser, P.E., who also led the seminar series. Lee has over 15 years of engineering experience, is the current Vice President of Engineering at ORR Protection, and is a Fire Protection and Mechanical Engineer licensed in 12 states.
Fire Alarm System Basics: Operations and Common Problems
Thursday, June 30th at 3:00pm ET.
This first webinar will provide one with the very basics of Fire Alarm systems and what common problems can be expected in their operation. If you are looking to install, operate, or repair a system, this webinar will give you the basic knowledge you need to understand these systems.
During this session, one will learn about the different types of panels, common circuits, and various signals of a system. One can expect to end the webinar with a full understanding of fire alarm system basics and an increased comfortability around a fire panel.
Addressing Fire Alarm System Nuisance Alarms and Suppression System Accidental Discharges
Thursday, July 7th at 3:00pm ET.
This webinar will directly address one of the biggest problems when dealing with Fire Alarm Systems; nuisance alarms and accidental discharges. If you have ever had to deal with an accidental discharge, or would like to prevent one from occurring, this webinar will put you on track for false alarm prevention.
Lee will start this session by introducing the problem of nuisance alarms and follow up with how large the problem of these occurrences are. Most importantly, he will teach the audience about prevention methods and what can be done to curb false fire alarms from occurring. One will leave the webinar with a better understand of accidental discharges and actionable ways to eliminate these false alarms from occurring.
Curing Fire Sprinkler System Corrosion and Leaks
Thursday, July 14th at 3:00pm ET.
During this session we will address the causes of sprinkler system corrosion, the effects of a corroded system, and methods to prevent this from happening at your location. This webinar is a must-attend if you are currently dealing with a corroding system or would like to be proactive in preventing your system from falling victim to this natural degradation.
Specifically, Lee will uncover the circumstances that cause corrosion in dry and preaction sprinkler systems and discuss how a faulty system can negatively affect your location. He will then showcase the utilization of nitrogen to prevent corrosion and ensure sprinkler system health. Upon the conclusion, one will have the ability to spot potential corrosion hazards and know what actions to take to prevent further damage.
Trailblazing Technologies in Fire Detection
Thursday, July 21st at 3:00pm ET.
To finish off the Fire Protection Webinar Series, our last webinar will look at the most up to date technology in Fire Protection and look forward to the future of Fire Detection systems. If you would like to be at the forefront of Fire Detection technology or are looking to upgrade your current system, this webinar will teach you what you need to know about the latest technology.
Lee will start with an update on spot smoke detector technology, which uses sensing technology designed to detect smoke earlier than other systems. We will then examine the growth of wireless fire alarms and other breakthrough technologies that will put your system at the forefront of Fire Protection. One can expect a deeper understanding of the advances that are "hot topics" (no pun intended) of Fire Protection in the United States and give you everything you need to know to stay up to date.
Whether you are a Fire Protection Expert or are just getting started in the field, these webinars will pique your interest. We invite you to sign up for any of our four sessions and share this opportunity with anyone you know that would like to learn more about how ORR Protection is shaping the industry.
