Looking for a fun and free way to get the word out about all of the benefits of home fire sprinklers? Check out all of the new content from the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC), including an interactive video guide offering a plethora of information on home fire sprinklers. Users can click through direct links of videos that answer common questions consumers might have about operation, installation, maintenance, and water usage, among other topics.


 

The new guide aims to increase the awareness and acceptance of fire sprinklers by U.S. homeowners. A  survey commissioned by HFSC shows that nearly 70 percent of homeowners say sprinklers increase a home's value. Nearly half of respondents referred to a sprinklered home as "desirable."


"If there's one thing we hear over and over again from consumers, it's that they'd wish they'd known they could have asked their homebuilder for home fire sprinklers," says Lorraine Carli, HFSC's president and NFPA's vice president of Outreach and Advocacy. “Consumers in every community need access to the facts about home fire dangers as well as the many benefits of sprinkler protection. We are hopeful this new guide will help more consumers end up living in a fire-safe dream home."
