“Survivable, unsurvivable, “ is one of the comparisons Brandon, MS Fire Chief and President of the MS Fire Chiefs Assn. Rob Martin made in explaining the side by side demonstration of a sprinklered room and an unsprinklered room in a recent event held to showcase the power of home fire sprinklers. He has lots of great information in his opening overview as to the virtues of sprinklers. Just as powerful are the pieces to watch where no one is speaking -  between six and six and half minutes and  from about nine minutes to about 9:40. In 30 seconds the fire is practically extinguished when the sprinkler head activates on the protected side. In just three minutes more, the room is clearly unsurvivable on the unprotected side. Side by side demonstrations are one of the best education tools on home fire sprinklers. To learn how to conduct your own, get a kit from the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition.
