PURVIS Fire Station Alerting System Principal Engineer, Scott L’Hereux, has been appointed to the Public Emergency Communication Committee by the NFPA Standards Council. The NFPA is the national fire protection standards body, and the Public Emergency Communication Committee is the arm of the association responsible for the development and revision of any NFPA documents that emanate from a Technical Committee project.
The Public Emergency Communication Committee shall have primary responsibility for documents relating to the operation, installation, and maintenance of public emergency services communications systems.
Functions as the standards body for the installation, maintenance, and use of Emergency Services Communications Systems (NFPA 1221). This ties in directly with Fire Station Alerting (FSAS), as meeting the 1221 NFPA standards is always a requirement of an FSAS.
PURVIS is thereby taking an active role in the advancement of fire protection standards, as it relates to the role of communications systems in helping to make safer communities.
