February Webinar - Trends in Warehouse Automated Storage and the Fire Challenges Associated With Them

Welcome to SFPE New England's February webinar. 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.

During the February webinar, Weston Baker from FM Global will present on the trends in warehouse automated storage and the fire challenges associated with them. 

Today’s warehousing is trending towards automated storage arrangements that reduce the time it takes to ship products out the door, but also increases the storage efficiency by reducing wasted space. However, with this trend towards automated storage comes new challenges for the protection of them from a fire perspective.

Learning Objectives

(1) an understanding of the various automatic storage and retrieval systems available on today’s market,

(2) the fire challenges associated with them,

(3) research that was conducted at FM Global to better understand these fire challenges, and

(4) a discussion on the various recommendations now offered in FM Global Property Loss Prevention Data Sheet 8-34, Protection for Automatic Storage and Retrieval Systems, for these automated storage arrangements.
