AFSA was organized in 1981 to provide the merit shop fire sprinkler contractor with training, consulting, communication, representation and many more services, all of which have expanded over its existence.
Membership is open to contractors, manufacturers, suppliers, designers and Authorities Having Jurisdiction. Currently, AFSA represents more than 900 companies and individuals in the United States and throughout the world.
AFSA believes that the installation of fire sprinklers could save thousands of lives and billions of dollars lost to fire each year. Increasingly, public officials are realizing this. AFSA acts as a liaison with other national associations involved in fire safety. AFSA helps to create an awareness on the dangers of fire by working together with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the National Fire Protection Association and the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition.
