Media drawn to live burn demonstration in Colorado

Blog Post created by freddurso Employee on May 22, 2014

The effectiveness of side-by-side burn demonstrations was evident in Colorado this month, when the Colorado Fire Sprinkler Coalition helped stage a public event that was highlighted by the media. Local TV stations caught the live demonstration involving two structures mimicking a living room—one equipped with sprinklers, one without—that were set on fire. These events showcase a sprinkler system’s rapidity in dousing flames and the devastating aftermath that could occur in homes without these systems. Common Voices, which is a group of sprinkler advocates impacted by fire, and the National Fire Sprinkler Association assisted with the event, which was seen by more than 200,000 TV viewers.
