The need to implement security and antiterrorist measures in Department of Defense (DoD) facilities and structures has been clearly demonstrated. Meeting this need required changes in new and retrofit construction criteria, as well as new and upgraded systems installation. To insure consistency in construction standards and systems utilized in DoD facilities, uniform design criteria and requirements have been developed and incorporated into Unified Facilities Criteria (UFCs). A mass notification system (MNS) is one of the systems that falls under the requirements established by the security UFC series. A MNS is utilized to protect life by indicating the existence of an emergency situation, and instructing people of the necessary, and appropriate, response and action. The requirement for a mass notification system (MNS) is established by UFC 04-010-01, DoD Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings.
This 6 hour course covers the mass notification system (MNS) design and operations and maintenance requirements for the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and Navy.
This course is intended for engineers, architects, facility planners, DoD intelligence personnel, DoD security personnel, government contracting personnel, DoD contractors, and students.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
