Firefighters Install Sprinklers in Habitat for Humanity Homes - Wilmington, NC

Firefighters are helping to install fire sprinklers in Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity homes in Wilmington, NC. The fire sprinklers will make homes in this community, which will be comprised of 32 new homes for low income homebuyers, safer for the families who will live there.

A cooperative effort between the fire department, Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity, and Fire Technologies Inc. of Castle Hayne, made this possible. Firefighters from New Hanover County Fire Services and fire companies in Pender County also volunteer for the project.

This is not the first Habitat for Humanity project featuring fire sprinklers in habitat homes. Throughout the country, numerous projects have been built with the help of firefighters, builders, and sprinkler contractors. By volunteering for these projects home fire sprinkler advocates demonstrate their commitment to protect the community and keep families occupying affordable housing safe from the devastation of fire, and they are to be commended for their efforts. Thank you!
