Fire Industry Association (FIA)

 

The Fire Industry Association (FIA), Europe's largest trade association for the fire protection sector, has lots of new and exciting things for visitors at FIREX. 

Those visiting the stand will be pleasantly delighted at the new and improved FIA Bar, where guests can relax, unwind, have a drink, and catch up with new and old colleagues. It's a great space for networking and a great space to meet with other members of the Association.

Membership of the FIA has been growing at an exponential rate over the last year – over 800 companies nationwide are now members, with some joining from outside the UK. Membership of the FIA has some excellent benefits – use of the FIA logo on all your marketing materials such as your website and vehicles for added credibility, discounts on British Standards and all FIA training and qualifications, and access to exclusive members-only technical councils, working groups, and events.

Known throughout the industry as the hub of technical excellence, the FIA has a wealth of technical expertise on a range of areas from fire detection and alarms, to extinguishing systems, to fire risk assessment and more. If you have a technical question, visit the FIA stand to have a chat with a technical manager who will be able to provide you with technical advice and guidance.

Lastly, but certainly not least, visit the FIA stand to have a chat about the qualifications that the FIA has to offer. Qualifications are all Level 3 on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), and will qualify a technician to design, install, maintain, or commission fire detection and alarm systems.
