The 34th annual meeting of the Fire Suppression Systems Association opened today with the largest attendance in the association’s history. President Tim Carman welcomed members and guests at the El Conquistador Resort outside of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The day’s busy agenda included presentations ranging from an economic outlook and forecast from Dr. Alan Beaulieu of ITR Economics to FSSA technical committee activities and from overviews of the impact of NFPA’s recommended practice (NFPA 3) and standard (NFPA 4) to understanding agent design concentration on Class C fires greater than 480 volts.  And if that wasn’t enough, others presentations involved stopping the employee turnover revolving door and appreciating that every face tells a story of experience and demeanor.

The Fire Suppression Systems Association is a not-for-profit trade association, drawing members domestic and internationally and is comprised of a blend of designer/installers, manufacturers, consultants, academics, and suppliers working together to share ideas and strategies for the benefit of the fire suppression systems industry. FSSA members are dedicated to the highest level of safety, reliability and effectiveness of special hazards fire suppression.
