NFPA 72 Fire Alarm Code: Mass Notification System Design Overview

With the release of NFPA 72-2010, opportunities for mass notification technology have increased. Today, alarm and mass notification systems must provide threat-specific verbal guidance and instruction for a variety of threats and hazards, not only within a building, but also outdoors (across a campus for example).
