We are pleased to announce that Richard E. Oliver will be inducted into the NFSA (National Fire Sprinkler Association) Hall of Fame Class of 2021. Accepting the distinguished honor, Dick will become the third Oliver to be named into this elite group of industry influencers joining his brother Bill Oliver, who was honored in 2011 as well as his father Leland Oliver, who was honored in 1997.
