Fire Service Membership Council Monthly Meeting
February 18, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
This is the monthly meeting of the Fire Service Membership Council, the fire service policy advisory group to the International Code Council. Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month. All members and other interested parties are invited to participate.
The ICC Fire Service Membership Council (FSMC) will meet on Thursday, February 18, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. ET / 10:30 a.m. PT
This month’s guest speaker is:
Steve Kerber, Vice President of Research
Director, UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute
Steve will present the latest on UL’s Close Before You Doze campaign. Fires have become more dangerous than ever. Modern synthetic construction materials, home furnishings, and contemporary layouts allow fire to spread and become toxic much faster – like three minutes or less to get out faster. But a closed door can slow the spread, reduce toxic smoke levels, improve oxygen levels and decrease temperatures dramatically – and that could make a life-saving difference in your home.
