Now more than ever, it is crucial to take a strong position as a united front in the residential fire sprinkler fight. We must stand up with courage and defend the inclusion of this life safety provision at the local and state level. Allowing opponents of residential fire sprinkler to win this fight will, for 20 more years to come, perpetuate the home fire death problem.
With this in mind, I'd like you to read NFPA's President Jim Shannon's message, "NFPA's Take: The Importance of Speaking Out About Fire Sprinklers" found in Firehouse magazine
The fire service told NFPA that the most pressing issue we should champion was residential fire sprinklers. We have done so, and now we are counting on you to carry the torch. We will continue to support your efforts along the way.
