Tonight I attended the local DHI chapter meeting, where I was one of the presenters in a “cracker barrel” style presentation on fire door assembly inspection. It was kind of like FDAI speed dating. We had 6 tables, each with a different topic and 1 or 2 presenters per table, and the attendees cycled through all of the tables to hear a 10-minute presentation on each topic.
The topics were:
- FDAI Basics
- Inspection Criteria
- Responsibility & Liability
- Potential Business Models
- Software Tools
- Education & Certification
If your local DHI chapter is interested in putting on this presentation, get in touch and I can help you with handouts, etc.
During the dinner portion of our meeting, one of the DHI members at my table said that when I don’t post on the blog for a few days, he grumbles about it (Hi Joe!). That’s so cool! I’m always surprised and excited when I hear that people come to the blog to check out what I’ve posted about, because sometimes I feel like I’m talking to myself. I hate to disappoint when I run out of time to write a post, but some days just get away from me. I’ll try to do better! 🙂
This was the exit door from the function room for our meeting tonight. Personally, I think the curtains are an issue, and the panic device is way too high – maybe not too high to be code-compliant (48″ maximum a.f.f.) but too high to look normal.
Thank you to everyone who participated in tonight’s meeting!!
