Honeywell Life Safety has opened a new state-of-the-art training center at its facility in Lincolnshire, Ill. Hands-on instruction on the latest fire alarm and gas detection systems from Notifier, Gamewell-FCI and Honeywell Analytics will be provided to distributors and customers currently utilizing these technologies.

Chosen for its central location less than 30 minutes from Chicago O'Hare International Airport, Honeywell Life Safety anticipates the new center will provide a convenient means for its authorized distributors to receive top-notch instruction. Sponsored guests, including facility managers and engineers associated with these systems are also welcome to attend.

"We worked to create a training experience that's as close to reality as possible. All of the classroom equipment is top-notch, just as you would see installed in the field," says Mark Levy, Honeywell Life Safety's CEO. "In the future, we hope to have more facilities similar to Lincolnshire, making it more accessible for our customers to remain technically advanced."

Honeywell Life Safety constructed specialized fire alarm training systems for students to practice and demonstrate competency in complex application programming. Classes ranging two to five days cover the latest fire alarm systems from Honeywell's Notifier and Gamewell-FCI companies such as the advanced ONYX Series fire alarm and voice evacuation systems and E3 Series Expandable Emergency Evacuation systems. Honeywell Analytics University uses a similar approach in its dedicated classroom, providing customers hands-on experience in the theory, operation and installation of its industry-leading gas detection products.

The Lincolnshire facility joins two other Honeywell Life Safety training sites in Atlanta, Ga. and its world headquarters in Northford, Conn. For more information on Honeywell's commercial fire alarm and gas detection systems, visit www.honeywelllifesafety.com
