"Every contractor MUST attend..."


An effective inspection, testing and maintenance (ITM) program, conducted in accordance with NFPA 25, is critical to ensuring that water-based fire protection systems operate properly when needed. The program also acknowledges the liability exposure of ITM and prioritizes the need for clear communication in order to protect the ITM contractor and technician. Communications with the building owner, the AHJ, and even internally can have a dramatic impact on the success of a contractors ITM program. This highly interactive seminar will walk participants through a process to develop a best practices approach to improve communications and reduce exposure to liability claims associated with an ITM program.
