The American Fire Sprinkler Association announced its upcoming two-part live webinar event, “Changes from the 2013 Edition of NFPA 13 to the 2016 Edition,” for Feb. 17 and March 30. Both parts will be presented by 2014 Henry S. Parmelee Award winner James Golinveaux.

The NFPA 13: Standard for the Installation of Fire Sprinkler Systems 2016 Edition has many changes from the 2013 Edition. This two-part webinar series will explore in-depth the revisions throughout the standard. In order to accurately understand and apply this standard, it is imperative one understand the changes made and the rationale behind those changes. Costly mistakes can be avoided by understanding these revisions.
