In response to the need to address the rapidly advancing practice of integrating multiple technologies and systems into one cohesive building system, NEMA’s Fire, Life Safety, Security & Emergency Communication Section (3SB) formed the new 3SB Systems Committee.
The committee will address the life safety aspects of integrating systems that encompass the inspection, testing, and maintenance requirements of life safety building technologies (such as fire alarms, security systems, and emergency communication systems) with other building technologies, including HVAC, elevators, and communications.
The committee seeks members to join this committee and the section, to provide valuable knowledge and subject matter expertise.
