We are long-time and proud members of different associations such as NAFED, CFAA, CASA and the NFPA. We have adopted their ethics and promoted their dedication to our industry.
NFPA AND SUSTAINABILITY
The introduction of new building materials, methods, and techniques changes the ways in which fire behaves. These changes have the potential to negatively impact buildings, their occupants, fire fighters and other first responders, and the environment.
Throughout its many projects and programs, NFPA strives to maintain a focus on the economic, societal, and environmental issues of fire while also seeking to address sustainability initiatives that will ensure the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
