Area 12: AK, ID, MT, OR, WA




The National Fire Sprinkler Association has two Chapters located in Area 12. The Puget Sound NFSA Chapter and the Columbia-Willamette NFSA Chapter both work toward our mission “to protect lives and property from fire through the widespread acceptance of the fire sprinkler concept.” Our Chapters not only provide access to local peers, but also to our nationwide peer network. As a member of a NFSA Chapter, you have an opportunity to meet with other members of the local fire sprinkler industry to discuss new and innovative ways to improve and protect the industry as well as gaining new ideas to improving your company and protecting your market share.

Furthermore, as a NFSA Chapter member, you may have the opportunity to meet local government officials and other industry stakeholders at our regularly scheduled meetings with your peers. This provides a great opportunity to provide feedback on local and statewide legislation, new technology and communication as well as to discuss new and exciting ways to promote and maintain the fire sprinkler industry.
