Who are we?

The Automatic Fire Alarm Association (AFAA) is the only not-for-profit association exclusively focused on the fire alarm industry. Founded in 1953 in Chicago, Illinois by a mixed group of contractors, engineers, and manufacturers. It grew to be a two-tiered organization (National and Local) in 1987 when Larry Neibauer became Executive Director. AFAA now has several Regional and Local Member Associations representing 25+ states nationwide. Membership consists of manufacturers, consulting engineers, distributors, AHJ's and end users.
