Murray Pound is the owner of Gold Seal Homes in Alberta, Canada. One hundred percent of the homes he builds are outfitted with fire sprinklers. “I think builders face a lot of obstacles today in that some of the information they are given regarding residential fire sprinklers isn’t completely accurate” says Mr. Pound. “They start to realize sprinklers are not as costly as they thought, and are not as hard to install as they thought, and people do actually want them when asked.”
"Faces of Fire" is a project of the National Fire Protection Association funded by a Federal Emergency Management Agency Fire Prevention and Safety Grant. The campaign is designed to put a face on the life-saving impact of home sprinklers. With funding from the U.S. Fire Administration, this campaign features real people telling personal stories to demonstrate the need for sprinklers.
