Fire systems are the key talking point at this year’s AGM
MD Alan also discusses the ‘iceberg effect’ of SELECT’s work
Kevin continues as president as office bearers are elected
Fire detection and alarm systems were the hot topics up for discussion at this year’s SELECT Annual General Meeting.
SELECT Members gathered at the Grange Manor Hotel in Grangemouth on 5 June for the 107th get-together, which featured a range of in-depth presentations. Managing Director Alan Wilson provided everyone with a detailed update on all aspects of SELECT’s current work, including membership, promotion and skills development.
He highlighted the input of the new dedicated Training department, which has delivered 316 courses to nearly 3,000 delegates over the past year.
And Alan also discussed the “iceberg effect” as he outlined how SELECT is working hard behind the scenes on Members’ behalf – in particular by lobbying hard for industry regulation and better protection on issues around payment and retention.
Dave Forrester, SELECT’s Head of Technical Services, delivered a technical presentation to the meeting.
He updated delegates on the changes to BS 5839-6, as well as Scottish legislation relating to the design and installation of fire detection and alarm systems.
Dave outlined the various types of interlinked heat and smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors that are now required in every home.
