Presentation: Emergency Indoor Communication for General Public and Public Safety First Responders (3:00p - 4:30p):

First responder communication systems within buildings are growing problem for cities, counties and building owners.  Often supplemental systems are needed within buildings to ensure quality first responder communications.  What are these systems, how do they work and where are they needed?  Please join us for a presentation and discussion with Mr. Alan Perdue from the Safer Buildings Coalition on this and related subjects.

Mr. Alan Perdue is Executive Director at Safer Buildings Coalition and President of Perdue & Associates. He is a County Commissioner and serves as Commissioner on the Commission of Professional Credentialing.  He has previously served on code committees and is the former Director of the Guiliford County Emergency Services.  The Safer Buildings Coalition provides advocacy and education around indoor emergency communications for general public and public safety first responders.  Mr. Perdue is a subject matter expert on indoor communications, related code development and system best practices.
