Are there any technical issues I should be aware of?

There have been very few technical problems reported by participants. However, one item will help ensure a positive webinar experience for you and other participants.

In relatively rare instances your web browser and internet firewall configurations can conflict with those of the GoToWebinar webinar technology. Please contact the GoToWebinar Customer Care Center at 1-800-263-6317. If you have any problems or questions about the webinar, contact Eric Armstrong, (414) 778-3372.

A few participants have experienced a very short delay in transmission of the PowerPoint display, so that their video display lags behind the presenter's pace through the PowerPoint presentation. The source of the delay is difficult to pinpoint because the visual display travels via multiple internet servers, your company's servers, the NFPA server and our provider's server on the way to your computer. 

Are there any other procedures participants need to follow?
  1. 1. Please join the webinar at least five minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
  2. 2. Participants are muted (listen only) upon entering the webinar to avoid any background noise  or static from possibly disrupting the presentation. If you have any questions during the webinar, please click the “raise hand” icon or type your question in the chat box and someone will be with you shortly.
