AFAA-NE is pleased to announce our May 24th membership meeting at the DoubleTree Westborough in Westborough, MA.
We all struggle with the need to satisfy the AHJs vs keeping the time and cost of documentation preparation real. This presentation will lay aside all of the conjecture and give you the facts you need to succeed.
Featuring Kurt Ruchala and Kevin Cox of Jensen Hughes, presentation highlights include:
- Increase in graduation FPOs from the Academy
- Documentation Requirements for:
- Tier 1 (Bid & Permits)
- Tier 2 (Shop Drawings)
- Tier 3 (As-Built Drawings)
- Doing it right the first time
- Best vs acceptable practices and the liabilities inherent in the choices
- The role of the FPE
- 3rd Party on-site Engineers (the Good the Bad and the Ugly)
Please come and have a sumptuous buffet dinner and join in on this informative and interactive meeting.

Bi-Directional Amplifier Presentations
Kidde is recalling certain Kidde NightHawk combination smoke/carbon monoxide (CO) alarms. The alarm can fail to continue to chirp when it reaches its seven-year end of life if the batteries are replaced, leading consumers to believe it is still working. This poses a risk of consumers not being alerted to a fire or CO incident in their home. Kidde recommends replacing the affected units.
