The non-profit HFSC “is the #1 resource for accurate, noncommercial information and materials for consumers and professionals.” It was created in 1996 “in response to the tremendous need to inform the public about the life-saving value of home fire sprinkler protection.” HFSC offers free educational materials with details about installed home fire sprinkler systems, how they work, why they provide affordable protection; and answers to common myths and misconceptions about their operation.
Through grant funding – such as this latest one from FM Global – HFSC is able to fulfill its mission.
HFSC Board President Lorraine Carli accepted the award at HFSC’s recent board meeting. Presenting the award were Gary Keith, Vice President, Engineering Standards Manager, who represents FM Global on HFSC's Board of Directors; and Mike Spaziani, Manager, Office Engineering and Training for FM Global.
