Advisory Report: Building Bridges To Fight Construction Site Fires
Date & Time
Tuesday, October 25, 2022, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Matt Hinds-Aldrich Ray O'Brocki Gerald Potempa

This panel discussion with leading subject matter experts in the fire protection and insurance industry will address a persistent challenge in the builder’s risk and inland marine domain—fires in buildings under construction.  This discussion will cover a range of topics from codes and standards like NFPA 241, Hot Work Certification mandates, requirements for Fire Protection Program Managers on construction sites, the enforcement gap that often occurs in many communities, emerging technology for mitigating construction site fires, and ultimately best practices in coordinating efforts between local municipal fire protection personnel and insurance loss control personnel to turn the corner on reducing these preventable losses.  Even if you are not directly responsible for insuring construction sites you will want to join us as there are strong parallels with the emerging best practices in terms of mitigating other fire claims from non-cat and wildfire exposures that can impact your bottom line.
