In a July press release by the Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE), United States Alliance Fire Protection (USAFP) was recognized as the first accredited residential fire sprinkler contractor. The official, nationwide launch of the program will occur during the CPSE awards dinner on August 15.

The accreditation process is rigorous. A self-assessment form covers eight distinct categories each with required core competencies and preferred performance indicators must be submitted, each with supporting verifiable evidence. CPSE then evaluates the submission to determine a company's fitness for accreditation.

Accreditation is designed to establish a new level of trust. Local authorities, homebuilders and homeowners can be confident that an accredited residential fire sprinkler contractor stands behind its work and conducts its business with integrity.

Jamie Reap, USAFP vice president, was instrumental in helping USAFP achieve this status. "My biggest contribution was helping the people involved understand how our industry works from the contractor perspective," Reap said.

"We at USA Fire are honored to receive this distinction and pledge to live up to the high standards demanded by it," said Bill Winzentsen, USAFP vice president of residential.
