Firefighters Benefit from Free Training

Silent Knight by Honeywell provided a two-day training to familiarize Rochester, N.H., firefighters with the most current fire protection technologies and codes. Between emergency calls, the department's two shifts of 19 men and women received an overview of the latest National Fire Protection Association, International Building, and National Electrical codes. Demonstrations of common fire alarm systems' configurations and capabilities were given, using the latest technologies in product lines from Silent Knight. Representatives from System Sensor and Honeywell Analytics also covered new advances in carbon monoxide detection, gas detection, and voice evacuation intelligibility.

"I think this training was important to give our firefighters a different viewpoint of fire systems, how they operate, and the applicable codes," said Rochester Deputy Fire Chief Fran Zombeck.

Silent Knight sponsors an ongoing series of basic fire alarm trainings free of charge throughout the United States. Although the one-day Fire Drill course is open to the general public, most attendees are fire alarm technicians. Technical seminars and Lunch & Learn meetings for architects and engineers are frequently hosted by Silent Knight regional managers and local Farenhyt distributors across the nation, with an increasing outreach to first responders.

"We interface with fire services people every day. It's a part of what we do," says Jim Spooner, Silent Knight product manager. "But this is one of the few organized trainings we've provided them, and we hope to do more in the future."
