NFPA Trade Show
This has been a whirlwind first year. HSI-Fire is fully up and running. We now represent great fire protection lines like: Armstrong Fire Pumps, AST Tank, RP Fire Pumps, Tarsco Tank, Xerxes Tanks, Tornatech Fire Pump Controllers and TIGERFLOW Package Fire Pump Systems.
So with that great line up; we (Joy and myself) headed off to the NFPA convention and trade show, June 13th through 16th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The trade show consisted of 385 exhibitors and more than 4500 attendees. Joy and I were able to meet with our principal lines along well as investigate new products and processes for the fire protection industry.
Armstrong Fire Pumps held its annual fire meeting, they discussed new products, updates and marketing goals. This meeting also allowed for Joy and I to meet with other Armstrong Fire Pump reps and Armstrong personnel.
At the show, Joy was able to meet her hero, “Sparky”, the mascot for teaching children fire safety. Growing up, her father was a volunteer fireman and so she feels she is carrying on his legacy by working on this side of the industry. On a social note, while in Las Vegas, Joy and I were married on June 17th. Viva Las Vegas!
