The Pagosa Springs Fire Protection District will host a series of seminars in September at the station at 191 North Pagosa Blvd.
Completion of sessions can satisfy DFS CEU requirements.
On Sept. 4, there will be a one-day seminar dealing with NFPA 13 Sprinkler System Installation Requirements.
There are hundreds of types of sprinklers in use today. Determining where to locate them can be a complex task. They need to be spaced properly and installed in specific locations to ensure coverage of the protected area and located far enough away from obstructions to ensure that the spray pattern can adequately develop and control or suppress a fire. The rules that govern this complex matrix of decisions are found in Chapter 8 of NFPA 13 on Installation Requirements.
This fast-paced and interactive seminar will guide the participant through the series of decisions and requirements that lead to compliance with NFPA 13 and ensure the system will operate properly when needed.
A one-day seminar on Sept. 5 will deal with Fire Service Mains and Their Appurtenances (Underground Piping).
This full-day seminar describes the responsibility of the contractor, owner and authority having jurisdiction for the proper installation of fire service mains and their appurtenances as addressed in NFPA 24.
On Sept. 6, a one-day session will consider the topic of Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of Water Based Fire Protection Systems.
This seminar describes the responsibility of the owner, contractor and authority having jurisdiction in maintaining a working water-based fire protection system. The seminar is based upon NFPA 25. This is a basic level class.
Registration fees (per class): Member or AHJ, $95; nonmember, $150.
