Lincoln, NE: Storage Occupancies & Residential Sprinklers Training
March 29 @ 8:00 AM - March 30 @ 5:00 PM
The Fire Sprinkler Contractors Association of Nebraska (FSCAN) is proud to offer two 8-hr seminars: one on the subject of NFPA 13 (2010 Ed.): Storage Occupancies and one on the subject of Residential Sprinkler Systems – NFPA 13D, 13R, & 13 (2010 Ed.) at the Executive Building in Lincoln, NE. AFSA senior instructor, Russ Leavitt, will present both seminars.
Wednesday, March 29: NFPA 13 (2010 Ed.) Installation of Sprinkler Systems – Ch. 12 Storage Occupancies
This seminar is based on the 2010 edition of NFPA 13 and includes a complete review of the design and installation requirements for storage occupancies, including design approaches with a variety of protection options (i.e. Control Mode Area/Density, Control Mode Special Application Sprinklers, ESFR, and in-rack sprinklers) found in Chapters 12-20 of the standard. The class will identify significant changes in the 2010 edition of NFPA 13; define terms specific to storage occupancies; identify commodities and storage arrangements; identify correct design parameters for the storage arrangements; and describe building construction impacting design. This course incorporates group activities and problem- solving for a workshop atmosphere and hands-on learning experience. It is designed for contractors, designers, architects, code officials, plan checkers, and inspectors.
