ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) will present a satellite broadcast on homeland security issues. According to the association, the broadcast will present guidance to reduce the threat of terrorism in buildings.

Topics will include risk assessment; chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) protection, such as envelope tightness; ventilation systems; particle filtration and gas absorption; pressure relationships and building interior partitioning; and an update on building codes and standards as they relate to CBR.

"By using a satellite broadcast to reach our 162 chapters, other associations, and industry representatives, ASHRAE can bring vital information to thousands of design engineers, architects, builders, building owners and operators, code officials, medical personnel, first responders, and others to educate and inform them on protection of buildings," said Ron Vallort, P.E., who will chair the broadcast.

The broadcast is tentatively scheduled for spring 2004. The program will feature a computer uplink where participants can e-mail questions and comments during the live question and answer session.
