Familiarizing first responders with fire alarm devices and FACPs is the reason that the Fire Alarm Systems Institute, LLC was created by five dedicated fire safety individuals who collectively have experience in firefighter training, fire response operations and fire alarm systems and their components. They created a three-hour, interactive training program to be presented at your site. Hands-on experience with demo FACPs is provided.
FASI currently provides training in the six New England States and Florida. Other areas of the US will be covered on an as needed basis.
Contact us for more information.
For the upcoming 2015 Fire Prevention and Safety FEMA grant, and if you do not have a grant writer on staff or one available to you, an experienced FEMA grant peer reviewer on our staff will provide guidance on writing the grant, provide you with a sample narrative and then review the grant for you, all at no charge. Simply give us a call. The grant opens on April 4th and closes on March 6th, 2016.

Purpose of FASI, LLC
Training is lacking on the interface and operation of the fire alarm control panels by our first responders. These firefighters need to know how to benefit from the information the FACP is giving them and what to do and not to do in response.
Some student questions & comments:
"This was a great seminar! I didn't know how much the fire panel could help me to perform my job."
"What does that flashing firefighter's hat mean in the elevator lobby?"
"What does the flashing light mean on the monitor module?"
"We learned a lot about specific panels and problems that occur in our districts that we had no answers for or anyone to explain it to us. You and your course did."
"I got to have hands-on experience with the panels."
