Named after the late George Lanier, who was the driving force behind Georgia fire prevention and code enforcement from 1964 to 2014, the lab is intended to also serve as a driving force for making Georgia safe. Many members of the fire service community are partnered: The Georgia Association of Fire Safety Equipment Dealers, the Georgia State Fire Marshal’s Office, the Georgia Fire Sprinkler Association and the Georgia Fire Academy.

The GPSTC will be celebrating its 30th anniversary July 22, 2017. All public safety manufactures and vendors are invited, so make sure to come out and see the new facility for yourself. Learn more about the 30th GPSTC Anniversary Product Showcase Event here.
