Fire Sprinkler Podcast Evolving!

Hi everyone! Is this thing on? I m not sure if anyone is still reading this blog, hasn’t been an update in a while. so I suppose I ll provide a little update to those scrounging the internet for “whats fire sprinkler podcast doing lately” searches….seriously, google has called…

Alright. That never happened. I am, however, blown away by the support of the fire sprinkler podcast. I have launched a supply house to help me grow this project to a successful brand. I believe with everyone’s support, we can create a Fire Sprinkler brand that people can stand behind as a staple of the industry.

I am hoping to launch a larger apparel brand with the fire sprinkler podcast. If anyone has any design experience, please drop me a line at chris@firesprinklerpodcast.com

Thank you to Drew Slocum for the demonstration of Inspect Point sprinkler inspection software. I enjoyed utilizing it in the field, and see this as a game changer in the near future. Keep an eye on inspect point!

Upcoming Fire Sprinkler Day!

I am pleased to announce I will be participating in the first annual Fire Sprinkler Day on May 19th, 2018 in Corunna Ontario. With the assistance of the St. Clair Township Fire Department and Wallace-Kent Sprinkler Systems Inc., we will performing a Side by Side sprinkler demonstration, with complete flash over and sprinkler activation. The purpose of this demonstration is to give realtors, insurance providers, home builders, and the general public a visual depiction of how quickly fire can overtake your home, preventing you from getting out. I will be recording video and audio for the podcast.

4 Episodes deep

Recorded and released 4 episodes of the Fire Sprinkler Podcast so far, have lists of material I will be going over for new content real soon. A few pretty good sponsorship opportunities that I am waiting for, which is provide even more, newer content. I am excited to get release this information as it becomes available. Thanks every body for the support, I have decided to remove the Sprinkler Saves portion of the website, due to lack of consistent traffic, as well as the additional time required to update it actively. I will be sharing sprinkler saves on our social media pages, see stay tuned to them for all your sprinkler saves! Thanks everyone again for the support. We're only getting started!

I have offered up Wallace-Kent Sprinkler Systems Inc. side by side sprinkler demonstration, as well as my self to the multiple municipalities in my area. In a fun competition of sorts, the first municipality to "claim" interest will get the demonstration and me.

The Beginning...

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for the support in creating this podcast. Anyone to knows me well, knows I am very passionate about the industry and am always looking for new ways to contribute and learn about the trade. 

My name is Chris Logan. I am a third generation sprinkler fitter-turned designer who bleeds sprinkler water. I try to stay involved in the industry in as many ways as possible. I am currently employed at our family owned and operated fire protection company Wallace-Kent Sprinkler Systems Inc. (www.wallacekentsprinkler.ca). We are located in south western Ontario, Canada. I am also one of two Ontario representatives sitting on the Canadian Automatic Sprinkler Association's technical committee, we discuss potential code and requirement changes from across Canada,(www.casa-firesprinkler.org). I enjoy attending different trade shows around Ontario educating and discussing fire sprinkler, meeting with different authorities including fire departments, building departments.  I am married to a wonderful wife and mother to our 2 boys (future fitters!).

I look forward to expanding and growing this podcast to fill the gap not currently available online. I am open to suggestions, and the podcast email is firesprinklerpodcast@gmail.com

Thank you again for the support, I look forward to getting this started!
