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

Please mark your calendars and join us as we hear a presentation given by Knox Box, Mr. Larry Pigg. It is based on the premise that all water based fire protection systems rely on the augmentation of water into the system through the Fire Department Connections. It is obvious that the FDCs are vital to the reliable operation of systems. With dry standpipe systems they are the only water supply. As both a fire official and working for Knox I have spend over 20 years studying this issue, taking pictures following court cases and helping the engineers at Knox develop the only product that has proven to be successful in mitigating the threat.
