Summary: The Emerging Technologies and Home Fire Safety webinar; in partnership with the Vision 20/20 Project, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST); covered new developments in technology in three critical areas - cooking, smoke alarms and smart home technologies.
Presenters focused on the changes to new national standards that require all coil-top stoves manufactured after June 2018 to incorporate technology designed to prevent stove-top fires. Discussions include new technologies that may prove effective at preventing fires for gas stove cook tops and new requirements for smoke alarms designed to help reduce unwanted alarms.
Join us and learn of new developments in smart home technologies that may have an impact on fire prevention efforts in the future.
