Massachusetts Fire Sprinkler CoalitionJohn Grant, president of the Fire Chiefs Association of Massachusetts (a member of the Massachusetts Fire Sprinkler Coalition) and chief of the Milton Fire Department, wrote “Mounting fire death toll underscores need for sprinklers”, an op-ed that was published in a recent edition of The Boston Globe. In light of two recent fires that took the lives of two young boys and a disabled woman, Grant reinforces the importance of mandating the installation of fire sprinklers in newly constructed homes, a requirement that’s now being challenged by some groups and individuals.
