The Fire Protection Research Foundation (FPRF) recently published Carbon Monoxide Incidents: A Review of the Data Landscape by Milke and McAllister. The goal of the research was to identify carbon monoxide incident data sources, the advantages and limitations of these data sources, and trends in commercial occupancy carbon monoxide incidents. Organizations managing carbon monoxide databases include CDC, CPSC, OSHA, and USFA, among others. The report also presents NFPA and ICC code requirements for carbon monoxide detection by occupancy type and compares the requirements against trends in the data. The comprehensive report of findings can be accessed on the NFPA website by clicking here.

We are excited to announce that two of our EQUIP fire protection engineering interns have passed the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination and are officially Engineers-In-Training (EIT). Congratulations Curtis Fagan and Zelda Zhao on your big accomplishment. The EIT credential is an important stepping stone in an engineer's journey to professional licensing. We applaud your hard work. We are also thrilled to welcome two new students, Etienne Jackson and Siriwipa Kamma, into the EQUIP program. Etienne and Siri are both senior year students studying fire protection engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park.
