Our guest Speaker this month is Jeff Lewis, with VSC Fire & Security, to speak at about using Virtual Reality devices in construction and training.  Below is a quick bio of our speaker:

  • Jeff began his fire protection career as a Certified Firefighter in Forsyth County, NC from 1986 to 1990.
  • He graduated from Guilford Technical Community College in 1990 with an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Fire Protection Technology.  That same year he began work in the fire protection contracting field.
  • In 1996, he began employment with VSC Fire & Security, at that time known as Virginia Sprinkler Company.
  • In 2005 he was promoted to Vice President of Inspections and is currently responsible for supporting over 100 field inspection personnel across 8 states. VSC Fire & Security‚Äôs inspection departments provide turnkey inspecting and testing services for over 1 million client owned fire protection equipment assets.
  • In 2012, he graduated from Columbia Southern University with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Occupational Safety and Health with a concentration in Fire Science.
  • He is a member of the American Fire Sprinkler Association as well as the National Fire Protection Association.
  • Industry Certification:
    • NFPA: Certified Fire Protection Specialist
    • NICET Level 3 in Inspection and Testing of Water-Based Systems
    • NICET Level 3 in Special Hazards Suppression Systems
    • NICET Level 2 in Fire Alarm Systems
    • NICET Level 2 in Inspection and Testing of Fire Alarm Systems
  • In his current capacity he is responsible for the training of the VSC inspections Department. Keeping them abreast of current and new NFPA Standards and trending technology. As part of his training efforts he has adopted new cutting edge training tools. Utilizing Virtual Reality software and devices is cutting edge technology. Adapting this technology in training of our inspectors and service technicians will keep them current in their needed skills to inspect and certify a fire protection / Life Safety system is operable. Utilizing this technology will allow training on new systems without actually seeing a system in the field. So when they do come across a new system they will know how the system works, how to inspect the system, know the mechanics of the valves and components of the system operate from their VR training.

A Pre-Meeting Social will start at 6:30 PM.  The social time will be immediately followed with our Guest Speaker and Dinner starting at 7:00 PM.

Please make plans to attend!
