Course Information:

Title: "Clean Agent Fire Suppression: Sustainability and Safety"

Description: This course examines clean agents available for fire suppression. Clean agents are utilized when damage and destruction to business equipment and operations from water based fire systems is unacceptable. The agents reviewed are replacements for the traditional halon fire suppression applications. Recent new developments in the industry allow for greater sustainability and safety. The course highlights differences in the performance, safety and environmental characteristics of clean agents.

Learning objectives include:

  • Understand the history and use of NFPA 2001-the recognized "Standard on Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems" and why it was developed to protect the environment.
  • Learn how clean agent fire protection may be used in projects to eliminate ozone depletion potential, lower global warming potential, conserve water in specific regions, and work within current and foreseeable global environmental regulation. Discover how to use clean agent fire suppression to satisfy USGBC LEED pre-requisites and credits.
  • Gain an understanding of how these environmentally sound clean agents impact safety margins and new dev elopments in HVAC design.
