On November 22, 1905, three specialty contractors met in St. Louis, MO, to establish the National Automatic Sprinkler Contractors Association. In doing so, John Moore of the General Fire Extinguisher Company, W. G. Allen of Niagara Sprinkler Company, and George M. Myers of Standard Fire Extinguishing Company became the founding fathers of what is today the National Fire Sprinkler Association. In 1999 the NFSA formed the International Fire Sprinkler Association (IFSA) as a separate organization to encourage the use of fire sprinkler systems around the world. With NFSA providing the administrative services, the IFSA served as amechanism to help establish and fund the early growth of other national and regional organizations to promote the fire sprinkler concept. The European Fire Sprinkler Network (EFSN) and the AssociaçãoBrasileira de Sprinklers (ABSpk) of Brazil areamong the organizations founded with IFSA assistance. In 2005 NFSA celebrated its 100th anniversary with an Annual Seminar in New York City. "To protect lives and property from fire through the widespread acceptance of the fire sprinkler concept" is NFSA’s Mission Statement.
