The Coalition for Responsible Fire Protection is dedicated to advancing understanding and action to reduce the environmental impacts of fire protection. To further this goal the Coalition has developed a Contractor’s Guide to Responsible Fire Protection. This guide provides fire protection contractors with a framework for reducing environmental impacts, tracking performance and verifying achievements.
The audience for this guide includes a wide range of both buyers and sellers of fire protection goods and services. Companies that sell fire protection products or services include manufacturers, installers, sprinkler companies, equipment recyclers and agent reclaimers, and agent suppliers, etc. Buyers of fire protection goods and services include: building owners, federal state and local government agencies, specifiers, designers, building occupants, and more. Following this guide provides contractors with organized information that can be used to communicate to clients and potential clients their achievements in reducing the unnecessary environmental impacts of fire protection.
This guide also provides purchasers of fire protection products and services with a reference they will be able to use to specify in Requests for Proposals (RFPs) and in contracts, and how they want information on contractor environmental achievement information to be provided. As a result, this guide provides a framework for action by both buyers and sellers of fire protection products and services to reduce environmental impacts of fire protection.
