I have been in the Fire Protection Industry for over 30 years, and have designed more than a thousand different systems. Over that time, I have used virtually every form of suppression agent, as well as most forms of detection. That experience has given me a unique insight into a wide variety of applications. I have worked in virtually every major industry in Upstate New York.
Over the years I have been trained, or worked virtually every manufacturers equipment from Ansul, Chemetron, Pyrochem, PemAll, Fike, Pyrotronics(Siemens), Kidde, Fenwal, Gamewell, FCI, Notifier and probably a couple of others. My most recent certifications are from Kidde, and include their Conventional panels, Scorpio and Gemini II, and their Intelligent Panels Pegasys and Aries. I am trained on the Orion XT, a High Sensitivity Smoke Detector (similar to Vesda, but with improved abilities) as well as their Linear Detection, both conventional and addressable. I am also Trained on their various Clean Agent Suppression Systems, including FM200, FE13, Novec, Argonite, and Carbon Dioxide. I just recently completed my re-certification from Kidde on all FM200, FE13, Novec and Argonite Systems.
I have also achieved several certifications, primarily from NICET, but also from IMSA. I have achieved Level 4 Certification in Fire Alarm Systems, Special Hazards System Layout and Special Hazards Suppression Systems. Currently, I am one of only two people in the entire country that has achieved that distinction.
I also have a Level 2 in Inspection and Testing of Water-Based Systems, and a Level 1 in Automatic Sprinkler System Layout. You can see, that I have a broad experience on all aspects of the industry, that gives me a unique insight into the interconnection of the three types of systems, Fire, Clean Agent and Water.
I am licensed by the State of New York for Installing, Servicing or Maintaining Fire Alarm Systems.
I am also licensed by the State of New Jersey for Clean Agent Systems. This should be recognized in many of the states or jurisdictions that you will be working in.
I am also certified by Retrotec for Room Integrity Testing, which is required for acceptance of Clean Agent Systems.
