The proper maintenance of fire-resistance-rated and smoke-resistant assemblies starts with the specification for new construction. It has to be built right to be maintained right. Specification requirements and documentation retention can help with "building it right" the first time. But, the problem of how to maintain the fire-resistance-rating after construction continues to be an ongoing challenge in existing buildings. This month's session, 'If You Build It (Right), They Will Maintain It (Right)', focuses on the FCIA's proper Design, Installation, Inspection and Maintenance ('DIIM') - in reverse order. By starting with Maintenance and Management of the barrier and firestopping, a clear path is drawn for Specifiers, Contractors, Inspection Agencies and the Building Owner and Manager. Attend this session to learn how new construction planning can help manage barriers for the building's complete life-cycle. After the program, bring your questions for the expert led Q&A session.

Did You Know.... The 2012 and 2015 International Building Code requires special inspection of firestopping in certain types of structures. High-Rise and also critical structures in Table 1604.5 need to be inspected to ASTM E 2174 and ASTM E 2393, Standards For the On-Site Inspection of Installed Firestops. Inspection Agencies that want to prove their competence in inspection and firestopping look to International Accreditation Services (IAS) Accreditation Criteria AC 291. IAS is a global organization with accredited firms in the Middle East and USA. An IAS AC 291 inspection agency builds a management system where its procedures are audited by IAS personnel to verify that procedures for special inspection are followed. For Firestopping, the responsible person at the inspection agency must pass the FM or UL Firestop Exam. Both these exams are based on the FCIA Firestop Manual of Practice, a 1,000 page document that is the compendium of firestop knowledge. Classes for the exam are offered at FCIA’s Conferences and Symposiums. In addition to an IAS AC 291 Accredited Inspection Agency, a FCIA Member, Manufacturer Educated AND FM 4991 Approved OR UL Qualified Firestop Contractor is a must. Why? Firestop Contractors who don’t understand the zero-tolerance installation protocol of systems to the listings, cause inspection costs to skyrocket to the building owner. GC’s, Building Owners and Managers, hire the best. Hire a FCIA Member, FM 4991 Approved or UL Qualified Firestop Contractor with inspection by an IAS AC 291 Accredited Inspection Agency.

FCIA Mourns Oakland Warehouse Fire The Firestop Contractors International Association (FCIA) membership's hearts go out to the victims of the Oakland, CA warehouse fire. What is the solution to such a tragedy? While some may assert that sprinklers should be mandated in all buildings, there is more to building fire-safety than simply an installed sprinkler system. Alarms & Detection - The alarm system notifies occupants of a fire through smoke and fire alarms. Egress Systems - Adequate exit pathways and emergency exits must be in place, and the complete egress system needs to work. It also needs to be well-known by the occupants. Why? When fire and smoke strike, there is not time – or possibly visibility – to find one’s way out. Thus, the exit route must be known in advance. Sprinklers - Sprinkler systems in buildings may be able to control the fire until the fire department arrives to put it out. Compartmentation and Structural Fire-Resistance - Buildings that use fire-resistance-rated construction and assemblies designed to resist the spread of smoke allow for safe egress for building occupants. These systems also confine the fire to the room where it started. Several recent studies have even shown how keeping non-fire-rated doors closed in homes can help save lives. Education - Why isn't there a class in grades 6-8, 9-12 that teaches people what safety elements to look for in a building they are going to rent, buy or just occupy? Whether it is a restaurant, night club, hotel, school, dorm or other, people should ask upfront about the emergency procedures for if an accident takes place. And, do staff at restaurants, apartments or office buildings receive training on how to keep egress systems clear? They don't need to be architects, but they must be aware of what happens when buildings – and when things are stored in buildings – either are used incorrectly or put in the wrong place. Safety in buildings is something that needs to be taken seriously by all. Let's make some changes now. The key elements to a safe building suggested above could save your life someday.
