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,

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.
