“If you work in the fire sprinkler industry, or are affiliated with the fire sprinkler industry as a supplier, manufacturer, contractor, consultant, professional engineer, fire official, or building official then you don’t want to miss the next Capital Region Fire Sprinkler Association (CRFSA) meeting. CRFSA meetings are held every other month and include news, discussion, and presentations related to fire sprinklers. The members of the CRFSA are also involved in many public service projects that provide and/or promote fire sprinklers. To learn more about what’s happening in the fire sprinkler industry in the Maryland/Delaware/Northern Virginia/Washington, DC area join us at our next meeting”
