Participants arrive at Heathman Lodge for the first-ever Northwest Residential Fire Sprinkler Summit.
The Northwest Residential Fire Sprinkler Summit, being held today at Heathman Lodge in Vancouver, WA, is providing sprinkler advocates with the latest information and inside scoop on home fire sprinklers.
As readers of this blog know, if you have a reported fire in your home, the risk of dying decreases by about 80 percent when sprinklers are present, so summits like this are important tools to help spread the news about the life-saving potential of sprinklers...and help advocates make strides in ensuring the safety and well-being of their communities.
Today's summit, sponsored in part by the Washington and Oregon Fire Sprinkler Coalitions, is connecting sprinkler advocates with the information they need about water needs, political realities, code requirements, and so much more.

Sponsors of the Northwest Residential Fire Sprinkler Summit include the American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA), the National Fire Sprinkler Association (NFSA), and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
