As part of Fire Prevention Week, the North Palm Beach Fire Rescue team put on a side-by-side demonstration during their annual fire safety fair. The demonstration provided a powerful glimpse of the effectiveness of home fire sprinklers. 

Advocating for residential sprinklers, Lt. Andrew Lezza told News Channel 5, "Within two minutes, the sprinkler activated, everything was out, and everybody would have been safe. That's why it's really important to look into residential sprinklers."

As part of the Built for Life Fire Depratment program, the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition provides sprinkler demontration kits to Fire Departments. Sign up today!
