Every facility has inherent and unique risks, which introduce emergency communication design challenges. Understanding emergency communication system design, installation, and maintenance criteria requires engineers to be familiar with the applicable codes and standards, primarily NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code. Whether designing to provide emergency communication for fire or mass notification emergencies, NFPA 72 can be used as a tool to enhance the design, installation, and reliability of fire alarm systems used for emergency communications.

Learning objectives:

  • The audience will understand applicable sections of the 2013 edition of NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code
  • Attendees will learn the design criteria for emergency communications systems (ECS)
  • Viewers will understand the factors required to be considered when designing mass notification systems (MNS), a subset of emergency notification
  • Viewers will learn how to apply (and subsequently specify) available notification technologies in ECS and MNS applications.
