CFPA Meeting - Antifreeze Use in Fire Sprinkler Systems, Where We Stand Currently and How We Got Here

Location:

West Metro Fire Rescue Training & Events Center

Classrooms 2 & 3

3535 South Kipling Street

Lakewood, CO 80235

Presentation:

In 2010 NFPA issued a safety alert and TIA regarding the use of antifreeze solutions in fire sprinkler systems after a fatality occurred as a result of sprinkler discharge on to a grease fire with very high concentration of antifreeze. The TIA and subsequent NFPA standard updates limited the concentration of new antifreeze and required listed antifreeze in new installations with a sunset date of September 30, 2022 to replace all existing antifreeze solutions with listed antifreeze. Twelve years after the initial TIA, the industry has made progress with several new UL approved antifreeze products being approved but there are many challenges that remain. With the sunset date fast approaching this presentation will take a look at how we got to this point and what options and best practices are available, specific to Colorado, for new antifreeze systems and replacement antifreeze in existing systems.

Nominations for the 2023 CFPA Board will also be discussed at this meeting

Presenter:

Robert Merlino, P.E. - Western States Fire Protection & Current CFPA Board President
