The National Fire Protection Assn. wraps up its annual World Safety Conference and Exposition, which has been running for the past five days at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., today.

Major items of business at this year’s conference were the proposed 2007 edition of NFPA 72, National Fire Alarm Code, and NFPA 25, Standard for the

Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems. Also NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems, has just completed its cycle with a number of significant changes.

Look for full coverage of the 2006 NFPA World Safety Conference in CSE’s upcoming June issue, both in print and online.
