Drew talks with fire protection industry legend, Terry Victor. Terry is on 20, yes 20 different NFPA committees. He also has his dream job as Sr. Manager of Industry Relationships for Johnson Controls. This is his first podcast, but it won’t be his last. You’ll soon hear him everywhere. Drew already wants to book him again!

Terry shares his rich history in the fire safety industry as well as his predictions for the future, including the Internet of Things (IoT) and the connected system, as well as remote monitoring and inspection.
