Wayne Automatic Fire Sprinklers Receives Special Recognition from FFMIA

June 16, 2014
I want to call out very special recognition for Wayne Automatic Fire Sprinklers for their outstanding work on two Habitat homes in the City of Casselberry. Wayne AFS stepped up to donate the labor and the materials to fire sprinkler protect these two brand new single family dwellings. Even more impressive is that that these homes were built in seven days during the Habitat blitz week. This required close coordination with the other trades and a commitment to assign resources when specifically needed to make this happen in accordance with the aggressive schedule….not an easy task when you are donating your labor. (A copy of the Habitat brochure for this event is attached as an FYI.) This is the kind of dedication by a company and team members that helps ensure our public is protected from the tragedy of fire. Thanks again to the Wayne AFS team for making this happen! Anthony C. Apfelbeck CFPS, CBO, CFO, FM, FIFireE Fire Marshal/Building Official
