The National Fire Protection Association's World Safety Conference & Exposition(R) recently took place at the Dallas Convention Center in May. Several new and innovative products for the fire protection industry were on display. Here are some of the highlights of the show.

TISCOR has upgraded its FireProof software application, making it even easier for facility managers to track the inspection and maintenance of their fire and safety equipment. The improved version, called FireProof XT, was designed to simplify inspections on equipment such as fire extinguishers, fire hoses, ladders, sprinkler systems and emergency exits. Inspectors use hand-held computers loaded with the software to scan bar codes on equipment located throughout a facility. Each time a bar code is scanned, users can enter information pertaining to the specific item into the software application. The system then automatically records the date and time of the inspections to ensure data integrity. TISCOR.
