An Important Message From The Austin Fire Marshal’s Office

 

Effective Monday, June 02, 2014, Fire Final inspections will not be scheduled for any project within a building that requires, but does not possess, an active Fire Protection Systems Permit.

You are probably aware that this change was scheduled to go into effect in March.  However, permit processing issues were identified and a determination made to delay this change until those had been resolved.

 

  Effective Monday, June 02, 2014, Maintenance/Licensure Inspections (i.e. Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Daycare Facilities, Clinics, etc.) will not be approved for occupancies that require, but do not possess, an active Fire Protection Systems Permit.  You may find information about the new Fire Protection Systems Permit, including the web application, at http://austintexas.gov/department/afd-permits

    

In an effort to better serve our customers, effective Monday, June 02, 2014, a new phone number will be utilized to schedule inspections related to commercial projects.  This includes sprinkler, alarm, Fire Final, kitchen hoods, etc.  That new number is… 512.974.0153

ABOUT US

The FSCATX is a non-profit trade association that was formed in 2012.  The original purpose of the Association was to bring together Fire Sprinkler Contracotrs of Texas to assure that a recently passed licensing law would be applied accurately and fairly and that the industry would speak with “One Voice.”  Since those early days, the Fire Sprinkler Contractors Association of Texas has evolved into much more than concern for a single cause.  The “specific and primary purpose of FSCATX is to advance the science of fire protection and fire prevention, to provide educational services to the fire sprinkler industry and general public in the areas of fire protection and fire prevention, and to promote and preserve ethical standards for fire sprinkler contractors.”

  FSCATX INAUGURAL CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC

 

It is with great pleasure that we announce that the members of the newly formed Fire Sprinkler Contractors Association of Texas, FSCATX, have chosen Texas ScottishRite Hospital for Children as the beneficiary of this year’s Charity Golf Classice event.  TSRHC was chosen because they treat children at absolutely no cost to the family. 

 

The hospital is totally dependent on gifts and fund raising events to pay the costs of providing their orthopaedic and learning disability services. The 2013 event will be held at  Trophy Club Country Club on September 30th.

 




 


TEXAS CONSTRUCTION ASSOCIATION

FSCATX has joined eleven other trade associations to  form the Texas Construction Association.  Through our TCA affiliation, our members are provided the information they need to monitor legislative activity that directly affects our industry.


AFSA

 In 2013 FSCATX directors of the association voted maintain a “State Affiliate” relationship with the American Fire Sprinkler Association.

                    

This affiliation will provide our current and future endeavors with funding and educational resources to pursue new projects to benefit our members, our industry and our communities across the state.  The AFSA affiliation opens many opportunities for our membership to learn and grow.

 
THE PURPOSE OF BIKING FOR BRAINS

 

In 1997 two fire sprinkler contractors by the name of Art Hartman and Mike PeCoy proposed a thirty mile bike ride to make other contractors aware of a need by Parkland Hospital’s Camp I-Thonka-Chi, which is a special summer camp for children who have been victims of fires.

 

As time passed a scholarship was added for Texas students who

are in programs that will lead them to work in the fire sprinkler industry. The bike ride itself is not a fund raiser.  The purpose is to make fire sprinkler contractors aware of the need and to make the public aware of both the camp and the training available at the Construction Education Foundation of North Texas located in the Dallas Airport area.
