Mar 14, 2017 3:00pm ‐ Mar 14, 2017 4:00pm


Credits: None available.

Standard: $30.00

Description

Hear lessons learned from two recent hospital fires and how the Total Concept of the Life Safety Code® (design, construction, and compartmentation; provision for detection, alarm, and extinguishment; and fire prevention including training and drills) kept patients safe. The session will take the Total Concept one step further to where the building design process not only addresses the minimum codes (e.g., the Life Safety Code) but is expanded to take into account effective fire procedures, surge planning, and building evacuation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the building design and operational features that support an effective health care fire and evacuation procedure.
  • Describe the lessons learned from one or more recent hospital fire scenarios.
  • Recognize the interrelationship between fire procedures, staff training, and fire drills.
  • Identify how the requirements of the Life Safety Code® directly correlate to effective fire and evacuation procedures.
