In this series, we will cover various tools for fire protection professionals to make quick determinations that routinely come up in projects. We'll break out many of the resources available to you as part of MeyerFire University and what we call the MeyerFire Toolkit. We hope that you'll find helpful tips and tricks that you can use professionally to help you be as effective in your role as possible.

This series includes a mix of reading, articles, and videos. It's also a deeper dive than some of our other content, and upon finishing includes 2-hours of continuing education credit.
