Monthly Member Meeting

  2. Adoption of Agenda
  3. Adoption of July Minutes
  4. Financial Report – Tim Lindsay, Treasurer
  5. TECH TALK (approx. 2:40 – 3:10 PM) – Duct Smoke Issues
    It has been identified that most haven’t been tested properly over the years and often didn’t work from day one. One of the primary reasons is due to improper placement in the first place, which should be in the supply duct with an appropriately sized and positioned air sampling tube. You need a manometer — a device to measure pressures, which commonly consists of a U-shaped tube of glass filled with some liquid — to do correct testing for air sampling. This Tech Talk will be led by Tim Lindsay or Cantec Fire Alarms and Murray Enders of Troy Life and Fire Safety.
  6. Prices Alarms Becomes Telus Custom Security Systems
    Randy Beres, Director of Sales, Western Region, for Telus Custom Security Systems will join us to talk about the acquisition of Prices Alarms by Telus and the upgrade requirements for D-Vacs lines. We’ll be discussing how this corporate changeover will affect our life safety customers.
  7. Court Cases We’re Watching
    The Okotoks Premium Fire Owner is being sentenced (July 29th), so we can give an update on how this has evolved. Tim will also give an update on Prince George case and its certification.
