In February, AFP attended the annual FSSA (Fire Suppression Systems Association) annual meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona.  The FSSA is an organization of manufacturers, suppliers, and designer-installers, that specializes in protecting high value special hazard areas from fire.  Specifically, the FSSA allows AFP to keep informed about the lastest fire protection technologies, legistlative updates and idea sharing with the best in the business.  As a result of this information we are better prepared to service our customers. The president of AFP, Brett Straten, sits on the FSSA technical committee.  The purpose of the technical commitee is to advise the board on technical matters. 

At this particular meeting time was spent reviewing the changes to the recently adopted NFPA 72 2010 edition (see blog post).  Impending changes to NFPA 2001 were also discussed.  One key speaker spoke about how social networking will affect business in general.  One of the lead in videos is posted here.
