NFPA 909 Requirements for Cultural Properties

Presented by Mark Hopkins, Vice President of Engineering

 Seeing fires at the Notre Dame, Brazil’s National Museum and other historical/culturally significant properties is devastating to say the least. NFPA 909 provides protection requirements for museums, libraries and other cultural properties in a wholistic manner. The document requires fire prevention, active fire protection systems, passive fire protection features, and considerations for resiliency and salvage planning. When applied, it imposes additional requirements for water-based fire protection systems beyond what is typically required by building and fire codes which impact cost and schedule. Fire protection contractors need to function as part of the team assembled by the facility operators. Understanding roles and responsibilities is necessary to manage expectations. Communicating effectively will ensure successful projects in these facilities. This webinar will discuss issues effecting fire protection contractors working in these types of facilities.
