Fire departments to receive stipend for sprinkler demonstrations

Blog Post created by ryan.quinn Employee on Sep 21, 2011

With funding through a Fire Prevention and Safety Grant awarded by the Grant Programs Directorate of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition will select 100 BUILT FOR LIFE Fire Departments (BFLFD) to each receive $1,000 stipends. The stipends can be used to conduct powerful sprinkler side-by-side educational demonstrations for their communities. Applications are due October 15.

Side-by-Side sprinkler demonstrations are a highly effective way to educate the public and decision makers on the life saving power of residential sprinklers.
