The tragic fire in Grenfell Tower London was a stark reminder of the danger of fire in high rise buildings. During this 1 hour session we will review the key principles of detection, protection, containment and egress of fires in high rise buildings then consider what went wrong in this event. Participants can expect to understand these key principles of fire safety in tall buildings and what they can do to minimize the risks in their own properties.

This Briefing will be led by Geoffrey Fordham, a Certified Fire Protection Specialist with the NFPA and currently employed by ONYX Hospitality Group as Senior Vice President of Engineering, Safety & Security.
