http://nfpa.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8351b9f3453ef017d3cecfdba970c-piAs I watched a multi-million dollar home and two other homes burn on live TV this week I continue to wonder why the citizens and the fire service do not stand for something different. The Seattle Fire Department needed help from several other departments in the area and they all did a great job.
The funny part of this story is; I wonder how many of us even knew that we had two sprinkler saves in WA that saved millions of dollars and kept 20 or 30 people from being displaced from their homes?
The sad fact is a multi-million dollar house burns to the ground makes the headlines; the fact that we could save millions dollars with home fire sprinklers does not even make the news!!!! This is the reason why I love to share our stories with you, because they are out there happening every day.
