Sept10FSI The September 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, NFPA's Chris Dubay talks about the Standards Council ban on the use of antifreeze solution in residential fire sprinkler systems for new construction. You can also download a new report on sprinkler performance in homes with sloped and beamed ceilings. We also talk about the dismissal of a lawsuit that was filed by the Pennsylvania Builders Association to block a requirement to install sprinklers in all new homes in the state starting this January.

Join us this December for the NFPA Fire & Life Safety Conference in Orlando which will offer more than 50 intensive education sessions in four tracks, including one track dedicated to fire suppression issues. During one session, NFPA's Chris Dubay will be providing an overview of the recent Standards Council decision to ban antifreeze solutions in residential fire sprinkler systems for new construction.

While in Orlando, we'll also be offering a 2-day post-conference seminar (Dec. 16-17) focused on sprinkler hydraulics, and a 1-day seminar (Dec. 16) on fire protection concepts and analysis for property loss prevention.

All sessions will be taught by NFPA staff and/or technical committee members who work directly with the codes. Stay at the Hilton in the Walt Disney World® Resort at the special NFPA room rate of $89/night plus tax. Learn more and register today.
