The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) and NFPA are present at the annual National Association of Realtors conference in Anaheim, California. The conference has brought together more than 19,000 real estate professionals under one roof.

HFSC distributed educational materials and engaged those stopping at the booth; providing answers to many questions. NFPA staff conducted an online survey about fire and life safety issues and to gauge real estate professional’s knowledge about home fire sprinklers.  The results of the survey will be used later to develop communication strategies for this important stakeholder.

Those participating in the survey were entered into a drawing for a Kindle reader. Bebe English from Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, in Pittsburgh, PA was the winner and is pictured below with Regional Director of Fire Prevention Maria Figueroa, and Fire Sprinkler Specialist for the Western Region, Jeffrey Hudson.NFPA-NAR_Winner_11:13:11
