Home fire sprinklers are apparently too important of an issue to be confined to America's borders.
In a recent edition of Fire Fighting in Canada magazine, Shayne Mintz, NFPA's Canadian regional director, describes how NFPA is prioritizing sprinklers in his coverage area. "Our most vulnerable people are relying heavily on us for their protection," Mintz said in the article. "One of the vital initiatives for which NFPA will advocate is the adoption of fire sprinklers in new, residential construction."
Mintz also plans to work closely with the Canadian chapter of the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition to boost educational efforts.
