With funding from State Farm Insurance, the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) sponsored the installation of fire sprinklers in the new home of Senior Airman Michael Malarsie who was severely wounded in Afghanistan.
Malarsie, who became blind as a result of his injuries, was selected to have a home free of cost by Operation Finally Home, a program that provides custom made homes to wounded and disabled veterans, who have served in the Iraq or Afghanistan war.
Automatic Fire Protection donated the design and installation and Tyco donated the material. The system was installed this week and construction of the house will hopefully be finished around the holidays, so the family can celebrate in their brand new home.
Ultimate Surprises teamed up with JR Martinez, spokesperson for Operation Finally Home, and with Tilson Homes to give Michael and his family the surprise of their life. Watch the inspirational video that follows:
