The National Electrical Manufacturers Association’s (NEMA) Signaling Protection and Communications Section—comprised of fire and life safety industry experts—is excited to announce the release of a library of application guides and manuals on fire detection, emergency communication, and life safety.

All fire industry members including fire service/fire prevention officers, designers/engineers, fire alarm installers/service providers, building managers/engineers, and building owners will find these documents useful. The documents are based on national fire and life safety codes and standards, and are presented in an easy-to-understand and use format.

There are numerous advances taking place in fire detection, notification, and life safety such as intelligibility of emergency voice communication systems, carbon monoxide detection, multi-criteria fire detection, and new alarm communication methods. The documents address all of these advancements, as well as provide a solid overview of the basics of life safety systems for those just entering this field.

To download or purchase these documents, visit Amazon Kindle™, iTunes, or the NEMA website.

Contact the section’s program manager at daniel.finnegan@siemens.com with any questions or comments. Future documents including Application of Flame Detection and Quality Guides for Systems will be available soon.
