Fire Safety Matters partners with EMS for webinar on ‘Fire Safety in Tall Buildings: Using Wireless Technology’
27 July 2021
THE NEXT instalment in Fire Safety Matters’ ever-popular webinar series takes place at 10.30 am on Wednesday 25 August and sees the magazine partnering with fire detection products specialist EMS to examine the hugely topical issue of fire safety in tall buildings and, in particular, the vital role that can be played by wireless technology.
With ‘Waking Watch’ introduced as an interim measure, what’s the best solution for protecting properties both quickly and effectively in the longer term? A recent analysis published on GOV.uk highlights that ‘Waking Watch’ is costing a ‘mean’ average of £20,443 per month per building in London. That equates to around £145 million per annum just to cover the nation’s capital.
Chaired by Western Business Media’s CEO Mark Sennett and featuring a detailed presentation from Ray Puttock (EMEA marketing manager for fire products at EMS), the webinar will examine the use of wireless technology which, in just a few years, has moved from being viewed as a niche solution for historic buildings to become a very real answer when talk turns towards having protection in place quickly and effectively in any building.
The webinar will focus on how to build upon an existing fire system infrastructure that may well be deemed inadequate as it stands, but could be the basis for providing an enhanced solution – all at a cost far less than that required for ‘Waking Watch’ and realising all of the added benefits that technology brings as a by-product.
What about connectivity for buildings? How might that augment safety? In addition to answering these questions, the live event (which will subsequently be made available via our On Demand service) is set to examine the increased use of ‘Smart Services’. What are they and what do they offer?
How building managers and users can benefit from ‘instant’ information, as well as how third party ‘non-fire’ products and systems might be integrated to offer real value, is going to be part of the discussions here. These ‘Smart Services’ have now arrived at the SME level.
The targeted content of this Fire Safety Matters webinar is going to be ideal for installers and specifiers as well as end users and building managers. All attendees will receive a one-hour Continuing Professional Development certificate courtesy of the ongoing special arrangement that Fire Safety Matters has forged with the Institute of Fire Safety Managers.
