The Fire Sprinkler Initiative (FSI) participated as an exhibitor at the National Association of Counties (NACo) 2013 County Solutions and Idea Marketplace recently held at the Ft. Worth, TX convention center.

This annual conference provides county officials with opportunities to vote on NACo’s policies related to federal legislation and regulation; network with colleagues; learn about innovative county programs; find out about issues impacting counties across the country; and view products and services from participating companies and exhibitors.

The booth was staffed by Fire Sprinkler Specialist Trim Travers and FSI Communications Project Manager Maria Figueroa. We shared important information on the life safety and other benefits of fire sprinkler systems and experienced extremely positive interactions with these crucial stakeholders in the home fire sprinkler debate.

Participating in this expo provides FSI an excellent opportunity to network with public officials and policy makers; many of whom are unaware that state legislatures have passed laws taking away local control to make the decision to adopt fire sprinkler requirements in new one- and two-family dwellings.
