Fire Smarts Innovation

Fire Smarts, LLC is a leading provider of fire protection educational and training resources.  Fire Smarts Faculty members frequently publish articles and reports on the latest industry developments and create custom training solutions for contractors, fire and building officials, and business organizations.


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 bought the rights to www.ResidentialFireSprinklers.com. He 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.”

With the rights secured to the www.ResidentialFireSprinklers.com site, Ryan began to determine how to best use what he believed would eventually become the most recognized site in home fire protection. He comments, “When I looked at the home fire protection industry I could not find one common place online that brought together the best of the web for home fire protection. ResidentialFireSprinklers.com fills this need by bringing together the best home fire protection resources from all organizations and giving people of all experience levels and opinions a platform to communicate and influence the future of home fire protection.”

Building on Success

Fire Smarts, LLC and its online resources continue to attract a growing number of users each day.  With the release of the Home Fire Safety – Consumer Bulletin and educational articles distributed through www.ResidentialFireSprinklers.com, Fire Smarts, LLC, has firmly taken root in the fire protection community as a powerful vehicle to influence home fire protection.

After numerous requests from users of ResidentialFireSprinklers.com seeking guidance in selecting a qualified contractor in their local area, Fire Smarts, LLC, launched www.FireProtectionSource.com.  This online fire protection contractor directory connects consumers with local qualified contractors for their fire protection needs.  Ryan comments, “Online options for finding fire protection contractors were few and very generic to all contracting trades.  Today’s consumers want more than just a yellow pages ad. FireProtectionSource.com has been designed so that consumers can rate the contractor’s performance and add a written positive or negative review attached to the contractor’s profile for all to see.  This encourages contractor quality and ensures that the best contractors stand out from the rest based on unbiased consumer feedback.”

Continued user feedback 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.
