DALLAS, TX — Southeast Fire Protection of Houston, Texas has been awarded the American Fire Sprinkler Association's (AFSA) Quality Contractor recognition, a program recognizing fire protection companies that exhibit the highest commitment to corporate responsibility and standards.

Southeast Fire Protection has been helping protect people and property in southeast Texas since 1986, offering a broad range of life-safety systems and service programs designed to meet the specific needs of each facility and its occupants.

"The Quality Contractor recognition is an acknowledgement of what Southeast Fire Protection has been able to do for our employees and the benefits we offer our employees," says Dwight Bateman, founder and president of Southeast Fire Protection. "We're proud that we've gotten this recognition and of what we've given back to the community."

The Quality Contractor (QC) program publicly recognizes and honors fire sprinkler contracting firms that have documented their commitment in four key areas of corporate responsibility: safety, training, quality of life (employee benefits) and industry and community relations.

"Congratulations to Dwight Bateman and all of the employees of Southeast Fire Protection for putting in the time and effort to receive Quality Contractor Recognition," says AFSA's Director of Member Services Bradley Elliott. "They have shown that they meet the highest industry standards as verified by AFSA."
AFSA's QC recognition program is similar to programs developed by other industry trade groups that reward their members who pursue a higher level of professionalism and is not an accreditation or certification program. AFSA is pleased to recognize Southeast Fire Protection as the newest QC designee. To learn more and to download the QC application, click here.
