The day-long sessions feature presentations by Tyco life-safety experts on codes, technologies and applications, group breakout sessions, and displays of advanced solutions for fire alarm, sprinkler, special hazards, nurse call and security.
 
At the New Orleans road show, H. “Butch” Browning, Jr., Louisiana State Fire Marshal, delivered the opening address to more than 100 participants, including building owners, facility managers, engineers, installing contractors, AHJs (authorities having jurisdiction) and other fire and life-safety professionals representing a variety of industries. According to Browning, “Without vision, people perish. All of us in the life safety industry must strive for advances in technology that save lives and protect property.”
 
Connecting Customers with eServices
This year’s road show series is placing particular emphasis on eServices, an integrated suite of technology and service capabilities that greatly enhances the overall value and cost efficiency that Tyco SimplexGrinnell can provide in fire and life-safety environments. The road shows offer an in-depth look at Simplex TrueAlert ES – the revolutionary family of addressable notification appliances with self-testing capability. TrueAlert ES notification provides more design flexibility, improved operational efficiency, and lower costs of ownership.
