September 22nd, 2008

Residential Fire Sprinklers Market Growth and Labor Demand AnalysisIn response to the passing of code proposal RB64-07/08 with public comment #2 to the International Residential Code (IRC), I have authored a report with contributions from Steven Scandaliato, SET, and Ryan J. Smith, to provide a residential fire sprinkler market analysis that projects the market potential and labor demand created by the eventual widespread enforcement of these code changes.

There’s no question that the recent passing of residential fire sprinkler requirements to the International Residential Code will change the industry in a breath and timeline never experienced before. How the industry responds to the need for additional skilled labor will determine how quickly this market potential can be fully realized.

Welcome from Russ Leavitt

May 27th, 2008

Hello, my name is Russ Leavitt and I would like to welcome you to my web site.

The fire protection industry is on the verge of an expansion that will dwarf all previous growth.


  • – the increasing emphasis on life safety (residential fire sprinklers)
  • – the economic realities of sound risk management (Sarbanes-Oxley)
  • – the global exporting of fire protection technology

My personal mission is to help facilitate this growth.

Sound, cost effective, life safety and risk management are worthy objectives and I am proud to be associated with an industry that does make a difference in people’s lives.

This web site is my personal forum to share my thoughts, ideas, and assistance with anyone who is looking for a challenging career, help in solving life safety problems, or simply looking for answers to questions.

I look forward to hearing your ideas and thoughts about the wonderful opportunities that await us in making our world a safer place for all.
