TEXAS CONSTRUCTION ASSOCIATION
FSCATX has joined eleven other
trade associations to form the Texas
Construction Association. Through
our TCA affiliation, our members are
provided the information they need
to monitor legislative activity that
directly affects our industry.
THE PURPOSE OF BIKING FOR BRAINS
In 1997 two fire sprinkler contractors by the name of Art Hartman and Mike PeCoy
proposed a thirty mile bike ride to make other contractors aware of a need by
Parkland Hospital’s Camp I-Thonka-Chi, which is a special summer camp for children
who have been victims of fires.
As time passed a scholarship was added for Texas students who
are in programs that will lead them to work in the fire sprinkler industry. The bike
ride itself is not a fund raiser. The purpose is to make fire sprinkler contractors
aware of the need and to make the public aware of both the camp and the training
available at the Construction Education Foundation of North Texas located in the
Dallas Airport area.
