Spend a few minutes talking home fire sprinklers with Margaret "Peg" Paul, and you'll immediately notice an innate passion that extends beyond her simply doing a job. She's an educational tour de force, literally bringing the sprinkler conversation home via free resources by the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition that she's helped create and promote.
Her efforts haven't gone unrecognized. Sprinkler Age, the magazine of the American Fire Sprinkler Association, has named her this year's Advocate of the Year for her years of promoting not only sprinklers, but burn prevention tactics.
First collaborating with NFPA in the early '90s, Paul has made a name for herself in the fire safety world, even practicing what she preaches by having sprinklers installed in her home. "Peg is one of the most well-respected voices for home fire sprinklers," former NFPA President Jim Shannon told the magazine. " Her work on behalf of HFSC is the basis for every public education effort in support of home fire sprinklers that exists today."
