NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative held a live side by side burn demonstration in Weymouth, Massachusetts last week as part of the launch of its new campaign -- Faces of Fire. Funded with a grant from FEMA, Faces of Fire is another tool for advocates working to get sprinkler requirements in every state in the country. It features the stories of individuals impacted by fire -- some are fire victims, members of the fire service who have responded to home fires and those whose homes and lives have been saved by sprinklers. The live demonstration is one of the best education tools available to allow people to see firsthand both the devastating and fast moving effect of fire as well as the quick, life-saving response of sprinklers.
