The Alsip Fire Department recently conducted a side-by-side burn demonstration underscoring the importance of home fire sprinklers in protecting lives and property. Chicago’s WGN Around Town segment featured the activity.

The coverage includes two videos with narrative. Alsip’s chief did a great job with the narration. It was obvious that the interviewer from WGN was thoroughly briefed when she said;  "Having fire sprinklers is like having a fire fighter standing guard in your home."

A live burn demonstration is one of the most effective community awareness activity. It is the best way to illustrate the power of fire and the effectiveness of home fire sprinklers.

The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition provides a free fire and sprinkler burn demonstration kit and awards stipends to conduct the burns to members of the Built for Life fire department program.
