Fire Smarts, LLC was founded by Ryan J. Smith to focus on creating innovative educational and training services focused on fire protection. Early in 2008, after resigning from his position as Executive Vice President of Telgian Corporation, Ryan began the formation of the company and the recruitment of a first-class internationally recognized team of fire protection experts with a proven ability and passion to teach. These instructors, known as Fire Smarts Faculty, are leading professional engineers, NICET certified technicians, and members of NFPA code and standard technical committees with an expert knowledge in the proper methods for design and installation of fire protection systems.

NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) Training

The NFPA standards are the most respected standards for fire protection in the world as demonstrated by their rate of adoption and enforcement in the United States and internationally. Fire Smarts provides custom tailored NFPA training courses throughout the United States, Middle East and other parts of the world to meet the education needs of those building owners, fire officials, building officials, engineers, consultants, designers, inspectors and technicians responsible for fire protection systems. Whether in-person or web-based, our expert instructors deliver the highest quality NFPA training available with competitive pricing to meet your training budget. When training a group of six or more people, it is often more cost effective to have our instructor come to your location, eliminating costly travel time and expense for people to attend.

ICC Preferred Provider – CEU’s for ICC Certification

As a nationally recognized fire protection training company, Fire Smarts has been approved by the International Code Council (ICC) as a Preferred Provider. This means approved Fire Smarts training programs qualify for Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) for ICC Certifications. We deliver both onsite live training training programs and online training programs that deliver ICC approved CEU’s to participants.

Residential Fire Sprinklers

Fire Smarts bought the rights to www.ResidentialFireSprinklers.com. Ryan recalls, “At the time I was amazed that such an important website address was for sale. Residential fire sprinklers not only have the power to almost eliminate home fire deaths, this proven technology also has the market power to catapult the fire protection industry into rapid growth. Buying the rights to this domain was an easy decision knowing the positive influence it could be used for…plus I wanted to make sure opponents did not get it and spread false or misleading information about residential fire sprinklers.” Be sure to download your copy of the  Residential Fire Sprinklers Market Growth and Labor Demand Analysis Report.

Building on Success

Continued customer feedback, further adoption and enforcement of NFPA standards around the world, and industry code changes increasing the use of residential fire sprinklers has illuminated a number of opportunities where Fire Smarts, LLC can leverage its industry expertise and technical aptitude to provide cutting edge solutions.
