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.”.

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
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.
