NEW YORK, N.Y. – For more than 30 years, Sirina Fire Protection Chairman Anthony Florez partially owned a New York metropolitan area fire sprinkler company not unlike Sirina. However, after a falling out with his business partner in 1990, he was forced to choose between an early retirement and starting over again.
