UPCOMING WEBINARS
Traditional and Particulate-Blocking Firefighter Hoods: Pros, Cons, and Trade-Offs

Wednesday, Wednesday, August 4, 12:30-2 p.m. ET
Bryan Ormond, PhD, North Carolina State University

This webinar will present the findings from a DHS FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant funded research study, led by North Carolina State University’s Textile Protection and Comfort Center (TPACC), on developing a system-level methodology for evaluating protective hood materials and designs for trade-offs between protection (particulate and flashfire), comfort, durability, and situational awareness. Firefighter exposure to chemicals through head, face, and neck demonstrates vulnerable body regions for exposure.

Cybersecurity for Fire Protection Systems: A Panel Discussion

Monday, September 13, 12:30 - 2:00 p.m. ET
Victoria Hutchison, Fire Protection Research Foundation; Tyler Robinson, Dark Element; Alan Manche, Schneider Electric; Joshua Brackett, Baptist Health; Ken Donaldson, MC Dean

Fire protection systems are increasingly networked to building control systems (BCS), Internet of Things (IoT), and other platforms that are, by design or oversight, exposed to the public-facing Internet. This emerging environment exposes fire protection systems to unique and novel cyber vulnerabilities and attacks that have the potential for significant consequences. However, a thorough understanding of cybersecurity issues related to fire protection systems has historically been lacking. This webinar will be prefaced by a short presentation of the findings of the FPRF Project “Cybersecurity for Fire Protection Systems,” followed by a panel discussion on the expanding cyber vulnerabilities and insider threats for fire protection systems, the severity of consequences, tactics to mitigate these threats, the role of codes and standards, and how we move forward as a community to reduce these risks.
