Sam Davis, president of Island Harbor Construction in Cape Coral, FL, and Alan Carter, fire marshal of Cape Coral Fire Rescue and Emergency Services, were recently honored by the Florida Chapter of the American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA) for their support of home fire sprinklers.

According to an article in the new issue of AFSA’s Sprinkler Age, while so many in the home building industry spend time fighting against home fire sprinklers, Mr. Davis offers fire sprinklers as a standard feature in the homes he builds. Mr. Davis is also featured in the “Faces of Fire” campaign on NFPA’s Fire Sprinkler Initiative website, part of an educational campaign created to show the impact of home fire sprinklers.


Mr. Davis credits Chief Carter with his vision and support for the installation of home fire sprinklers in Cape Coral, saying the award he received “…would never had happened without the determination to see this through from a professional like Alan.”
