What is the Fire Equipment Manufacturers’ Association?

Founded in 1930, the Fire Equipment Manufacturers’ Association is an international, non-profit trade association dedicated to manufacturing commercial fire protection equipment to serve as the first line of defense against fire in its early stages.

The Association is composed of three product category divisions. Association members work in smaller product-specific teams and collectively to impact industry issues and outcomes.

Who makes up the Fire Equipment Manufacturers’ Association?

The Fire Equipment Manufacturers’ Association is led by industry experts with decades of fire protection experience. FEMA members represent the top global brands in commercial fire protection.

Core Premise

The association centers its efforts around the key premise that safety to life is best achieved through the implementation of a “layered fire protection plan” design – a concept in which a proactive safety plan does not rely on any single safeguard.


Member companies unite to save lives and protect property through education and awareness, advancement of the fire equipment marketplace, and improvement in regulatory requirements.
