“My heroes are those who risk their lives every day to protect our world and make it a better place - police, firefighters and members of our armed forces.” -- Sidney Sheldon

This is a special portal we’d originally set up to help people with portable devices (iPhones®, Blackberries®, etc) navigate the “old” ASTTBC website.  While the new site has some similarities with ASTTBC’s main website (visually), there have been significant other changes incorporated.  For one thing, you can no longer access their forms page (unless you’re an RFPT in good standing).  This means the only forms freely available for download are now exclusively featured on our FORMS page.

We’ve also provided a link to ASTTBC’s Practice Guideline, which we still consider to be a good basic outline for a fire protection equipment service technician’s responsibilities!  All of ASTTBC’s past newsletters are also available.  Simply click on the links provided below.
