John Bennett GAFSEDFounded in 2000, GAFSED is committed to lobbying for the adoption of uniform standards and codes governing the fire equipment industry.  They work to develop and recommend policies and practices to stabilize the industry and promote the public interest. “GAFSED allows us to work with other fire equipment dealers, manufacturers, and the State Fire Marshal’s Office to improve the industry through training, collaboration, and advancements to industry rules and regulations,” John explains, “This team makes a difference by working to create a safer environment for employees and the facilities they work in, and I am honored to be a part of it!”

Just last year, the 2,400 square foot George M. Lanier Fire Protection Laboratory opened its doors due in part to GAFSED’s partnership with the Georgia Fire Academy. The training facility will house fully functional fire sprinkler systems, fire alarm systems, special hazard fire protection systems, HVAC systems and other related fire protection equipment. Such hands-on technical training will provide Firefighters and industry personnel with the knowledge and skills they need to keep our communities safe for years to come. With such a positive impact on Georgia, GAFSED is truly “Blazing the Way for Georgia Fire Safety Dealers.”

Integrated Fire Protection is thankful for the opportunity to contribute a voice to this reputable organization.  We are confident that John’s expertise and over 20 years of experience will serve as a valuable resource for GAFSED.
