February 8, 2011
With the Jan. 1, 2011 requirement to include fire sprinklers in all new homes, the state of Pennsylvania recently certified a training program for water authorities on residential fire sprinkler systems. The training program, provided by Uponor, a manufacturer and supplier of multipurpose plumbing and fire sprinkler systems as well as radiant heating and cooling systems, will also offer attendees continuing education units (CEUs). According to Paul McCulloch, technical representative for Uponor Fire Safety, the course will follow the requirements of the 2009 International Residential Code (IRC) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 13D Standard for the installation of fire sprinkler systems in single- and two-family homes.
