The EBC Climate Change Committee will host a site visit to the FM Global Research Campus for a tour and presentation. FM Global provides commercial insurance and loss prevention services, and their research campus is the world’s premier center devoted to preventing physical threats from turning into real-life catastrophes. Each state-of-the-art laboratory focuses on a specific hazard—fire technology, natural hazards, electrical hazards and hydraulics. Experiments not only help to understand risk—they help visualize risk in a safe and controlled environment.

For more information on the FM Global Research Campus, please see this short video overview and/or brochure.

Update on 6/16/17: Photos and video from the Site Visit are below.
