More than 100 healthcare facility professionals enjoyed the Barrier Management Symposium July 27th and 28th at Riley Outpatient Center.
The symposium focused on the Proper DIIM – Design, Installation, Inspection and Maintenance of Fire and Smoke Barriers that make effective compartmentation in healthcare facilities work at the time they are called upon by fire and smoke.
Thanks to the ISHE volunteers, our hosts at IU Health, and the dedicated representatives from ASHE, The Joint Commission, FCIA, and UL for an outstanding educational program.
More information about the program is available below.

Barrier Management Symposium
Produced by The Joint Commission, ASHE, UL & FCIA
The Joint Commission (TJC), the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE), Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and the Firestop Contractors International Association (FCIA) welcome you to a comprehensive and informative new symposium for healthcare engineering and healthcare professionals.
Fire and Smoke Barriers installed in buildings are living elements of the structure. They are there to protect healthcare building occupants and used for horizontal evacuation of areas to fire or smoke resistant zones. These barriers and their ‘features’ form Effective Compartmentation. Fire and Smoke Barrier Management Systems in building design and operations is critical to maximize property protection, minimize death and injury and facilitate entry and travel in structures for emergency responders.
This Barrier Management Symposium focuses on the Proper DIIM – Design, Installation, Inspection and Maintenance of Fire and Smoke Barriers that make Effective Compartmentation in Healthcare Facilities work at the time they are called upon by fire and smoke.
The program educates about testing that qualifies the products for use, code requirements, installation and inspection, then management and maintenance for ongoing reliability of the installed fire resistance rated and smoke resistant products. These products become SYSTEMS when they are properly ‘DIIM’d. Video presentations and an explanation of how each design element is tested to assess compliance with standard and code requirements in addition to the technologies are all included in this Symposium.
The Symposium is designed to increase the awareness of the Healthcare Engineering Professional of the value Barrier Management Systems have while understanding the underlying keys to their long term success.
Information gained from this symposium will allow you to:
- Focus – on technologies that have protected buildings for centuries.
- Manage – Manage the product and system evaluation, installation, inspection and maintenance of fire and smoke barrier components as a complete system. These systems are integrated to work together providing reliable building safety.
- Improve – the built environment for the healthcare facility that demand the best in fire and life safety through effective compartmentation.
- Increase – knowledge about how to purchase, evaluate and manage all effective compartmentation technologies
