FIA — Fire Industry Association
The Fire Industry Association, or the FIA as it is more commonly known, is a not-for-profit trade association with the aim of promoting the professional status of the UK fire safety industry.
The Association was born out of a merger between two longstanding and well-respected trade associations, FETA (Fire Extinguishing Trade Association) and BFPSA (British Fire Protection Systems Association). The two associations had long shared a common interest in the promotion of the professional status of the UK fire industry and the FIA is proud to continue this work.
