The Fire and Flood Restoration Program (FFRP) Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)

The Fire and Flood Restoration Program (FFRP) Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) was formed in 2005 as the British Columbia Association of Restoration Contractors (BCARC). It was the first association in North America devoted exclusively to workplace health and safety issues in the fire and flood restoration industry. BCARC amalgamated with the BCCSA in 2016 and the committee continues to deliver safety training and resources to the restoration industry under the Fire and Flood Restoration Program (FFRP).
