FREE Fire Systems Training for Fairfax Owners/Managers
AOBA is pleased to announce that by popular demand we will once again be offering FREE Fire Protection Systems training to members with interests in Fairfax County. Working with the Fire Prevention Division in the Fairfax County Fire Marshal’s Office, AOBA will host two training sessions this Spring for property managers and building engineers focusing on troubleshooting and maintaining fire systems commonly found in commercial and multifamily buildings. These highly reviewed programs serve not only to educate members, but to help them avoid pitfalls in local government inspections and save money in the process. And with the generous partnership of the Fairfax County Fire Marshal’s office, we are able to offer this opportunity to members at no cost. But be sure to sign up quickly as participation is limited and classes fill up fast.
The June 12 program will be designed specifically for property owners and managers. Participants will review the suggested schedule for daily, weekly, monthly and annual maintenance/checks of fire systems. Each participating member will receive a take-home booklet or CD with accompanying visuals, and a run-through of how to put together a maintenance plan to avoid common violations/problems. This will be followed by a panel presentation from vendor companies regarding costs and budgeting for fire protection systems and common pitfalls/traps to avoid when dealing with vendors and new products. The program will wrap up with a quick field trip to tour fire systems in their natural habitat.
Spaces are limited and sessions filled up quickly last year, so be sure to RSVP early for this unique opportunity!
