SimplexGrinnell Takes Its Show on the Road to 33 Cities


SimplexGrinnell, a business unit of Tyco Fire and Security, is taking its Fire and Life-Safety Road Show Series to 33 cities across the United States and Canada during 2005.

The first event in the 2005 series took place just last week in Jacksonville, Fla.

“What's New, What's Next, What's Vital” is the theme of the 2005 series. This marks the third consecutive year that the company has organized a series of symposiums and technology expos for engineers, architects, building owners, facility managers, contractors, local fire officials and others interested in code updates, technology advances and practical applications in fire and life safety.

“Fire and life safety is vital, and the SimplexGrinnell Road Show Series is a critical facet of our commitment to better the industry and strengthen the collective ability to deliver high-quality fire protection,” says Dean Seavers, president of SimplexGrinnell.

Topics in this year's series include:

  • Latest developments in fire sprinklers and special hazards protection.

  • Advances in emergency notification, including intelligibility measurement.

  • Fire protection product and service applications, migrations and upgrades.

  • Fire protection in healthcare environments and high-rise structures.

“Knowledge is key to those responsible for helping to protect life and property,” director of industry relations at SimplexGrinnell. “The 2005 Fire and Life-Safety Road Show Series provides a unique forum where professionals in the industry can learn about the latest developments in fire protection systems and services. It's a chance to share vital information and further the goal we all share for providing the best possible fire and life-safety protection.”
