3.             Project Partners

The Fire Protection Research Foundation is the principle sponsor for this project.  They have provided a grant to R.P. Schifiliti Associates, Inc. to conduct tests, draft code language and write a report.

One of the principle goals for this project was a quick turn-around and a second was low cost. To achieve these goals the help of other organizations was solicited. Project Partners were solicited to provide facilities for testing, technicians to assist in the tests and other services necessary to move the project forward. Several Project Partners have provided in-kind donations of time, facilities and services. In addition to the corporate support, several individuals within these companies have been instrumental in setting up and conducting the strobe tests.
