Program: “Protecting Fire Protection Systems from Natural Hazards”
Last year Hurricane Harvey knocked out power to a chemical plant. This resulted in a loss of refrigeration and subsequent overheating of chemicals leading to a thermal decomposition and fire. This session will discuss how to evaluate natural hazards and their potential impact on fire protection and safety systems. Protection of critical protection equipment from natural hazards will be discussed.
