David Sylvester, former chair and vice-president of the Canadian Fire Alarm Association and a well-known and loved figure in the Toronto area fire protection community passed away in November. He was with Leber Rubes (LRI) in the early 2000s, then with Morrison Hershfield in the mid 2000s where he designed “pick-and-place” fire alarm devices that could be used in real time for reviewing a building. For that work he received the 2010 Carson F. Morrison Award of Excellence for Innovation. He also developed the CFAA Codes and Standards Online Course. For the past two years he was with the Mircom Group of Companies as director of research and industry affairs. He left his wife Lucy and two young daughters.
