FSInewscover The December issue of Fire Sprinkler Initiative Update, our monthly e-newsletter, has hit the streets. (Read the issue or subscribe today - it's easy and free!)

In this issue, we highlight a new two-part podcast that features Jamie Lyons, senior engineer at Newport Partners in Maryland and author of the Integration of Residential Sprinklers with Water Supply Systems. Jamie talks about how the research was conducted and the key findings from the report.

We also talk about a new USFA campaign to urge homeowners to install smoke alarms and residential sprinklers, and offer up a video demonstration of how to install and maintain smoke alarms.

And on our blog, NFPA's Maria Figueroa takes on the facts about insurance and home fire sprinklers -- and how amending model safety codes by removing sprinkler requirements could have a negative impact on your wallet.
