ORR Protection Systems will be hosting its annual seminar series, A Morning with the Experts, beginning in March and running through the end of May.

The theme for this year's series, Become a Fire Protection Champion, will encourage companies to adopt fire safety advocates within their organization in order to provide awareness, monitor fire safety systems, and ensure the business will be protected in the event of a fire. The seminar is designed to first help businesses understand the essential elements of their Fire Life Safety Systems, any NFPA code changes they need to be aware of, and the requirements for inspection, testing and maintenance to keep facilities in compliance. The series is also designed with architects and engineers in mind, and will be discussing system design tips for lowering maintenance cost and improving serviceability. 

ORR Protection has hosted its seminar series since 2003 in an effort to bring people from multiple backgrounds (fire service, facility management, architects, engineers, and contractors) together in one spot to learn more about the fire protection industry. Participants can earn continuing education credits for attending the seminar, and will have multiple opportunities for one-on-one conversations with ORR's fire protection experts.
