To All,


Spring has sprung. As I write this, Memphis in May is getting underway and the chapter is getting ready for our last two meetings of the spring session. As indicated in my April President’s Message, Skip Westbrook with Chemguard-Tyco Fire Protection Products will be addressing our group during the May 17th meeting providing us with an update in firefighting foam technology. He will provide a brief history of firefighting foams and present foam technology.  So please plan on attending this meeting.  A meeting notice is attached to this e-mail.  Remember to invite your co-workers and others that might find this topic of interest.


As a reminder our June meeting will be joint meeting with the Memphis Area Fire Protection Association which will be held on June 9th.  During this meeting Joe Tortorici with Tyco Fire Protection Products will discuss the inspection of AFFF systems to comply with NFPA 25 and Ansul’s guidelines.  A meeting notice will be sent out in advance of this meeting.


Remember to visit our chapter website at and visit the SFPE International web site at .  Also remember to visit and support the Fire Museum of Memphis and visit their web site to learn about all the fantastic things they are doing to educate and inform the public about Fire Safety. The museum is located at 118 Adams Ave, Memphis TN 38103.
