Hosted by Safer Buildings Coalition leadership, with subject experts from our sponsor members, this interactive seminar is based on model codes regarding in- building public safety communications systems.


The Below 100® program, is a nationwide initiative that aims to reduce line-of-duty deaths to “below 100”. Below 100® has identified five core tenets, all under the officer’s control, by which officer safety can be improved—areas where we can make a difference. Below 100® isn’t about statistics. It’s about each and every officer, trainer and supervisor taking individual and collective responsibility for the decisions and actions that contribute to creating a culture of safety.
