The National Association of Fire Equipment Distributors (NAFED) was established in 1963 with the mission of continuously improving the economic environment, business performance, and technical competence in the fire protection industry. Our founders had certain practical goals in mind. As they managed their businesses and looked for new ways to improve and grow, they noticed that some things were missing:
• Where could they learn more about servicing new types of extinguishers?
• How could individual companies provide input into the structuring of national codes and standards?
• Who had the answers to technical questions?
• Who could assist in training new employees?
Today, our association continues to operate with that guiding mission and the principal objective of gathering and disseminating information and ideas that will improve the world's fire protection and increase the fire protection industry's competence. Our leadership, staff, and members work to develop factual information relating to the dependability and effectiveness of portable fire equipment, pre-engineered systems, and engineered systems so that agencies and organizations responsible for the formulation and enforcement of the world's fire codes are aware of it.
Because our members acknowledge the responsibility inherent in the sale and maintenance of fire protection equipment and service, and because we pledge to perform work and serve customers with the highest degree of honesty, skill, and integrity that such responsibility infers, NAFED members raise the bar.
The mission of the NFPA international nonprofit, established in 1896, is to reduce the worldwide burden of fire and other hazards on the quality of life by providing and advocating consensus codes and standards, research, training, and education.
The world's leading advocate of fire prevention and an authoritative source on public safety, NFPA develops, publishes, and disseminates more than 300 consensus codes and standards intended to minimize the possibility and effects of fire and other risks. NFPA membership totals more than 70,000 individuals around the world.
