SBCA Webinar: If “Naked Framing” Could Talk, Who Would They Blame Fires On?
Date: Tue, Apr 17 2018 1:00pm to 2:00pm (CDT)
Join us as we explore this question and discuss why building materials are often blamed for fires, particularly those that occur in buildings under construction, and why the finger doesn’t get pointed elsewhere. Panelists will discuss the many different ways fires start and provide attendees with a better understanding of root causes, which will help solve fire risks during construction with the goal to prevent fires from occurring.
