Protecting Your Home With Video

Blog Post created by ryan.quinn Employee on Feb 14, 2012

The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) has reached out to fire departments encouraging them to use the free educational materials that will help them educate the community on the importance of home fire sprinklers.


An impact video was e-blasted to 80,000 members of the fire service through FireHouse.com and provides information on how to obtain the free educational materials and other tips for reaching out to the policy makers in the community. The first 100 responders to a short survey included in the e-blast will receive a free HFSC thermos.

The fire service plays an extremely important role influencing the policy makers and the community on the need for fire sprinklers in the home and the life safety benefit these systems provide. Watch the video and arm yourself with the tools you need to bring this vital message to your community.
