For those of you that attended the recent FSSA annual meeting in beautiful San Diego, California, we hope you had the opportunity to meet the DuPont Science of Protection Team.  We are an experienced group of DuPont professionals dedicated to the fire business.  Our mission is to help protect lives and critical assets through education/awareness of the value and importance of suppression systems. We strive to motivate end-users and consultants to specify clean agents for mission-critical applications and to provide you with the support and tools needed to succeed in this rapidly changing market.  Those of us that are new to the fire industry appreciate the warm welcome received at the annual meeting.
In addition to our current team, here is what you can expect from us:
  • Helen Lowery (an FSSA director) and Jed Seay will be circulating across the US and Canada.
  • Rob Lee will be emphasizing special projects and targeted market segments; looking for new market sectors for suppression and ways to remove barriers to sale in our traditional markets.
  • Jill Moncarz will be creating the tools we need to make our message more effective. 
We have also expanded our Global team by adding resources in other key regions.  So, if you have a particularly challenging situation, a potential suppression project or application that needs support, or just need help shedding some illumination on the wonders of clean agent fire protection, we can help. For more than 50 years, DuPont has provided reliable, cost-effective clean agent fire suppression solutions with a dedication to safety. Our long history of success is the result of a close and active working relationship with the critical suppression equipment providers, installing contractors, and the many agents of influence that engage in fire suppression projects.
