The Principal

Paul D. Flannigan, SET, CFPS

Paul Flannigan started his career in fire protection when he was 16 as a member of his local volunteer fire department in New Castle, Delaware. Paul had a great deal of admiration for the company fire chief, who at that time was a gentleman by the name of Frank Suppe, a supervisor for a group of Factory Mutual Loss Control Agents. Mr. Suppe represented what Paul regarded then, and still now, one of the smartest people he knew in the fire protection industry. Emulating what he knew was the best, Paul seriously began building his career from that point, learning everything he could at the fire department level, eventually going to college, working in the fire protection industry as an educator, designer, manager, to now having his own fire protection consulting firm.
