The Fire Sprinkler Initiative participated as an exhibitor at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) 2013 Legislative Summit, recently held at the Georgia World Convention Center in Atlanta, GA.
NCSL is a bipartisan organization that serves the legislators and staffs of the nation's 50 states, its commonwealths and territories. The legislative summit provides opportunities for policymakers to exchange ideas on the most pressing state issues. By exhibiting at this conference, we are making sure that the home fire sprinkler issue remains alive in legislators’ minds.
As part of the effort, we also featured an ad in State Legislatures’ July/August publication, the organizations' magazine that was also distributed to all attendees at the conference.
We shared important information on the life safety and other benefits of fire sprinkler systems during many interactions with these crucial policy makers.
State Representative Vanessa Lowery-Brown stopped by and told us that she opposed the home fire sprinkler prohibition in Pennsylvania and understands the need for this important code provision; adding that she will continue to support the issue and hopes it will become the law in her state.
