June/July 2013

CFAA FUMBLES THE BALL!

Toronto, Ontario - May, 2013 debuted a new tool On CFAA’s website.  Despite concerns expressed by a number of individuals (myself included), the fire alarm inspection estimator tool was prominently featured at the Technical Seminar held in Toronto on May 31, 2013. The calculator is missing several key fire alarm devices that include end-of-line resistors, data loop isolators, in-suite signal isolators, and in-suite buzzers!  Our June EDITORIAL is sure to stir the pot a bit!

 

ACTIVE FIRE AND SAFETY, ACME FIRE AND SAFETY - A DOUBLE “A” FAIL!
