FSI10news The January 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 huge step forward in our efforts: Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, and California have all passed measures to require fire sprinklers in all new one- and two-family homes. We also outline some actions you can take to fight any anti-sprinkler legislation that may get filed in your jurisdiction.

We also talk about an event at the International Home Builders' Show next week in Vegas, where initial findings of a groundbreaking study on the environmental impact of home fire sprinklers will be released.

And on our blog, NFPA's Russ Sanders talks about a tragic fire that killed two young brothers on Christmas Day in Kentucky -- and how fire sprinklers could have made a huge difference in that event.
