As the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition's (HFSC) communications manager, my husband and I decided to protect our family from fire and retrofit our home with a fire sprinkler system 11 years ago.

I'll always remember the feeling of relief the day our fire sprinkler system was installed. Our daughters were 10- and 7-years old.

I felt that same relief this morning when I learned that my youngest daughter, who is now a freshman at the University of Arizona and a resident of Pueblo de la Cienega Hall, was protected by a fire sprinkler system during an early morning fire in a dormitory.

I was very happy to see Tucson Fire Dept. Capt. Jeff Langejans comment to the media about fire sprinklers saving lives.
