Learn Type II Building Construction and Sprinkler Systems from Chief Mike Terpak and Capt. E.J. Henninger

About this event

Approximately 80% of the American fire service provides protection for suburban districts, often with mixed use. And most of our communities have one or more "big box" stores.

Is your department ready for a fire at one of these locations? Have you visited and pre-planned your response? Are you under the impression that if that store is sprinklered, your job will be easy? Well, in recent months, we have seen at least two "big-box" stores burn to the ground. And both were sprinklered!

Our first Presenter is Chief Mike Terpak, one of most well-known experts on building construction. Chief Terpak will discuss the challenges we face in fighting a working fire in these types of buildings and what we might expect to see and deal with, once we are inside.

Our second Presenter is Capt. E.J. Henninger. Not only does he have 20 years of fire service experience, but he is also a planner and designer of sprinkler systems and know them intimately.
