Reduction of Fire Risk and Cost
1 Hour Breakout
In comparing fire costs to the perception of fire risk, it becomes clear that the views are not uniform from one to another. As fire safety professionals in whatever field that brings us in contact with subjects affected by these issues, we can hope that the lessons learned in the past can be used to help correct and implement safeguards for future events. Focusing on healthcare and educational campuses his presentation will provide insight into how the codes can be explained and fire safety professionals can utilize this information and trends to create safer campuses across America. This presentation will cover three topics of fire safety: Fire System Assessments, Fire Sprinklers and Fire Education. These issues if addressed can lead to a great overturn in the reduction of fire risk and costs related to mitigating those risks.
While serving as the Fire Safety manager at Southern Methodist University, Jason developed a fire system assessment matrix that provides a simple way to track fire costs and effectively communicate fire cost needs to upper executives and justify annual contract increases and new construction system maintenance. The matrix also assesses fire sprinkler depreciation, maintenance and insurance cost reductions. This gives fire safety professionals the tools to ensure a safer fire campus at a validated operational cost.
