Managing Risk and Liability in Fire Protection Contracts

Speaker: Rebecca A. Bowman, Esq., P.E. 

Welcome to SFPE New England's first in a series of webinars. Due to COVID-19, we are sadly unable to meet in person like we have for so many years. Instead we will be able to learn about new and exciting topics from the safety of our socially and physically distant computers. We are excited to present opportunities for New England's  fire protection industry to get together and stay current on new topics.

This months presenter is Rebecca Bowman who will be talking about what to look for in fire protection contracts and how to manage and mitigate risk and liability. This presentation will give great insight into everything you need to consider before you bid right through to after you have finished your work. This is different than our typical technical topics but contains a lot of practical information that professionals need to know.
