Help overturn proposed language that could negatively impact sprinkler contractors!


The AFSA technical staff and the AFSA Board of Directors are concerned about new proposed language for the 2022 edition of NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation to Sprinkler Systems, that may expose fire sprinkler contractors to more liability. AFSA held a webinar on May 27 concerning these issues.
Watch the recorded webinar "Critical Changes to NFPA 13, 2022 Edition (Water Supply)” below.


AFSA's Vice President of Engineering & Technical Services John August Denhardt, P.E., FSFPE, also wrote about this issue in the May/June 2021 issue of Sprinkler Age. Read this article here.
