Kat Thomson, PhD, New York City Fire Department Assistant Commissioner for Planning and Management will be presenting on Monday, February 11th.  She and her team will be visiting WPI’s Fire Protection Engineering Department to discuss FDNY’s data-driven building inspection system.  This system, which is still under development, addresses issues related to the buildings themselves and how certain types of architecture react to fire in NYC.
