Abstract:Green issues are becoming more ingrained in all aspects of life, from how we generate electricity to how buildings are constructed. This is beginning to have a significant impact upon fire safety and the codes are starting to look at how address issues such as roof-top photovoltaic units, residential automobile charging stations and much more. Also, fire safety is being positioned as a solution to reducing the carbon footprint as well, from reducing exhaust emissions on fire apparatus to controlling fires in their incipient stages through sprinklers.
Ed Comeau will discuss a number of these issues and what is being done both domestically and internationally when it comes to the intersection of fire safety and the environment.
