My name is Ed Nickerson and I am a fire protection engineer with 18+ years experience with insurance loss control. I am marketing an inexpensive hydraulic calculation program called 185Graph, which I feel may be of some benefit to the fire service.

Fire departments serve a vital role with respect to life safety and protection of property. However, the evaluation of automatic sprinklers is often left to others due to the costs and training required to perform hydraulic calculations.

By evaluating critical automatic sprinkler installations, fire departments will gain better understanding of the risks involved and can proactively initiate improvements that will ultimately reduce property damage and loss of life.

The program costs $149.95 and trial versions are available. If interested, please visit our website at http:\\ I would appreciate any feedback, questions or redirection to others that might be interested.
