NFPA Committee Appointments

Appointment to a committee by the National Fire Protection Association is a reflection of the appointee’s subject matter expertise and is an honor that should be recognized. Committee members are called upon to assist in the review and development of codes and standards based upon the recognition of their detailed knowledge and experience in a specific area of concentration.  The Fire Protection International Consortium, Inc. has recently received notice that two of our engineers have been appointed as Members/Special Experts to two major NFPA codes/standards committees.
Mr. Jonathan Kulpit, Senior Fire Protection Engineer in the Chicago office of The FPI has been appointed as a Member of NFPA 30, Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code.  Specifically, Mr. Kulpit has been appointed as a Special Expert to the Storage and Warehousing of Containers and Portable Tanks committee.  This NFPA 30, Flammable Liquids Code committee is responsible for setting the design and construction standards for safeguarding against fire and explosion hazards associated with flammable and combustible liquids in containers and portable tanks whose capacity does not exceed 660 gallons.  The FPI has concentrated on the industrial marketplace and this reinforces both Jonathan’s and The FPI’s experience in this highly technical aspect of fire protection.  The experience he gains in developing these codes will allow him to better represent our client base.
Mr. Corey Kinsman, Senior Fire Protection Engineer in the Chicago office of The FPI has been appointed as a Member of NFPA 232, Standard for the Protection of Records.  The records storage industry remains the largest market sector for The FPI and Mr. Kinsman has managed numerous records storage warehouse projects.  The NFPA 232 committee sets the criteria for the storage of records, and Mr. Kinsman will be responsible for ensuring that sound fire protection engineering principles are adopted for this industry.  Similar to Jonathan, understanding the “why” behind the requirements can only be determined by actively participating in the development process and the technical arguments presented.
The FPI is extremely proud of both of these engineers and firmly believes that involvement in the codes and standards development process, and these two committees specifically, best serve our client base.
