Door Security & Safety Foundation supports the annual fire/egress door inspection initiative by creating awareness of important updates to NFPA 80 and NFPA 101 and their inclusion in the International Building Code and International Fire Code. Through our educational efforts we help stakeholders understand the code implications and complexity of the products and applications.

Education Advocate Program

Our Education Advocate program uses a network of nearly 500 Fire and Egress Door Assembly Inspectors (CFDAs/FDAIs) to educate healthcare facility personnel on these new code requirements. Those who become Education Advocates have an exclusive opportunity to deliver all of the Foundation’s education to healthcare facility personnel and AHJs. Hundreds of healthcare personnel have been trained through this program and the program continues to grow. This offering is a value-add for the CFDAIs/FDAIs, including pull-through opportunities for their businesses as well. If you’re interested in participating, contact Sharon Newport at snewport@dhi.org to learn more about this opportunity to grow your inspection business.
