Can one be too resourceful? I think not…

I generally don’t use this space as a means of promotion/marketing, but every once in a while, I like to share information on resources that I think could be really useful to the safety community. Certainly those of you who’ve been “with me” since the start of this journey in the blogosphere (way back in June 2007—oh, the places we have seen!) will have learned about resources, met some folks (my esteemed former Greeley colleague Brother Brad Keyes being a notable) and hopefully found various kernels of knowledge and insight that have somehow fostered a greater understanding and sense of community.

So, this posting I wanted to chat a bit about some gents in Florida who I have come to rely on for information and insight in the realms of emergency power and life safety compliance: Messrs. Dan Chisholm, Sr. and Dan Chisholm, Jr. I would encourage you all to visit their respective websites and sign up for email updates—always good stuff. The latest missives involve discussion of confusion over diesel fuel testing requirements on the emergency power side of things; and discussion of the conversion of patient rooms into combustible storage rooms and some considerations that can be expected with the adoption of the 2012 Life Safety Code® (Dean Samet of TSIG being a guest contributor for that article—way to go, Dean!)

All too frequently, compliance comes down to being able to account for the various and sundry interpretations of the codified landscape—and it never hurts to have a little expertise in your back pocket! So if you haven’t yet made their acquaintance, please check out Dan, Sr. and Dan, Jr. and bring their expertise into your practice. You’ll be glad you did!
