The American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA) is a non-profit, international association representing fire sprinkler contractors, dedicated to the educational advancement of its members and promotion of the use of fire sprinklers.

AFSA was organized in 1981 to provide the open shop fire sprinkler contractor with training, consulting, representation and more services, which AFSA continues to expand. Membership is open to contractors, manufacturers, suppliers, designers and AHJs.

Political Committee

Primary election season is in full swing, Floridians will march to the polls on August 18th to have their say. Now, more than ever, the fire sprinkler community needs to be proactive in helping candidates for office work towards common sense solutions in the areas of our workforce, workers’ compensation, tax, regulation, health care, economic development, and labor.

Individually, you may choose to support candidates through your contributions and your vote. While the right to vote and your perspective on the issues are crucial, many still believe their voice is not heard throughout the process. So, what role does the American Fire Sprinkler Association Political Committee (AFSA PC) play in amplifying the voice of our industry?

Stated simply, the AFSA PC is a non-partisan, member-driven tool that unifies our industry of all sizes in our region and aids us in educating key decision makers on the issues that are important to you. A Political Committee provides our members with the means for concerted political action. And, the dollars contributed through the AFSA PC are used to provide support for state governmental leaders campaigning for election who share your interests.

The AFSA PC provides an avenue for you to make a meaningful impact on the process and by collectively mobilizing efforts (and, your engagement), AFSA PC creates synergy. Together, we are greater than the sum of our parts and our strength in numbers allows us to lead the conversation on public policy matters in Florida.

What We Do

AFSA acts as a liaison with other national associations involved in fire safety. Working together with government agencies, such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the National Fire Protection Association, the Residential Fire Safety Institute, and the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition, AFSA helps to create an awareness on the dangers of fire.
Currently, AFSA represents approximately 750 companies and individuals in the United States and throughout the world.AFSA believes that the installation of fire sprinklers could save thousands of lives and billions of dollars lost to fire each year. Increasingly, public officials are realizing this.
