Blog Post created by mikehazell Employee on May 4, 2010

Thanks to a generous Fire Prevention and Safety grant from FEMA, NFPA will be broadening its outreach to the nation's fire service with important messages about the life-saving impact of home fire sprinklers. The new "Faces of Fire" campaign, set to launch later this year, will include targeted messaging to the fire service via the Fire Sprinkler Initiative Web site, social media channels, and paid advertisements in national publications. The Web site will feature a special toolkit containing media materials, fact sheets, and other content to support sprinkler advocacy at the local level.

The grant will also allow NFPA to offer a one-day training session on home fire sprinklers for representatives from each state fire marshal's office along with a local building partner. Details are forthcoming; watch our Web site for more information.
