    Thursday, December 16 at 9:30am via Zoom


    Need a refresher on "Fire Panel Protection & Maintenance"? Join us for a fast, but deep dive into a "back to basics" presentation from BOMA/Suburban Chicago. This expert session is led by members Mike Carli, President and Jill Nottke, Vice President of Allegiant Fire Protection who will share their expertise on the parts and other components of fire protection systems.

     

    Key Topics will include:

    • Fire Sprinkler Systems
    • Dry versus Glycol Systems
    • What are Standpipes
    • Private Fire Hydrants
    • Hood Systems for Kitchens and Tenant Dry Chemical Systems
    • Requirements for Annual Testing, including Elevator Testing

     

    About our Speakers: 

    Mike Carli takes his role as a leader seriously. He believes that only by treating each person with respect will a company be successful. As president of Allegiant Fire Protection, he practices this each day with clients as well as team members. Prior to Allegiant Fire Protection's launch in January 2018, Mike spent 11 years with Valley Fire Protection Services. Mike started out as an inspection technician and then went on to manage both the Inspection and Fire Alarm departments. Mike holds a NICET Level 3 certification in water-based systems as well as a NAFED portable fire extinguisher certification.


    Jill Nottke thrives by treating each customer as if it were the only customer. Having spent over ten years in account management roles, this philosophy serves her well. As the Vice President, Jill teaches her team to respond quickly to client requests. Being in the life safety business, Jill stresses the need to be extra diligent in answering questions quickly. Prior to becoming Vice President at Allegiant Fire Protection, Jill was a senior account manager at Valley Fire Protection Services.
