1. A major initiative of our new fire protection engineer is to
f i n d J a p a n e s e equipment and materials-that will meet our fire
c o d e s . This information should save you and your A & E's from

2. Please feel free to discuss with Hr. Dinesh K. Pate1 any
proposed local product, n o t included in reference (a) or in
