Free Webinar:  Fire Doors Have One Job!
Wednesday, February 9th, 1:00-3:00pm Eastern

Swinging fire doors have one job: preventing a fire from spreading. Properly inspecting and maintaining swinging fire doors ensures they are ready to perform their one job. Understanding NFPA 80’s current requirements for inspecting, maintaining, and repairing swinging fire doors is only the beginning. Older existing fire doors were installed before many of today’s code requirements came into effect. Learning how older existing fire doors need to be inspected and maintained is essential to correctly performing NFPA 80’s door safety inspection.

This two-hour webinar with Keith Pardoe, DSC, DSI, FDAI, DAHC, CDC, introduces you to the 2022 edition of NFPA 80, Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives. Specifically, the session covers changes in NFPA 80 that provide guidance for inspecting and maintaining older existing fire doors. Attend this session for an in-depth look at the 2022 edition of NFPA 80. After the program, bring your questions to the Q&A Session.

International Code Council Event: Tornado Awareness and Risk Mitigation
Tuesday, February 15th, 2:00-3:00pm Eastern

With the recent deadly storms and tornadoes having claimed the lives of 90 people across 5 states, building safety professionals should understand their community’s risk from tornadoes and how to best mitigate their effects. We invite you to join the International Code Council for an hour with the smartest minds in wind science and tornado risk mitigation for the built environment. Our panel will share their experiences from a recent post-disaster assessment of storm damage in Kentucky and discuss the latest available research and wind science for tornadoes. The panel will also highlight tornado-resistant provisions in the I-Codes and the first-ever criteria for tornado-resistant design recently published in ASCE/SEI 7-22 Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures.
