One word: infographics. An eye-catching mixture of text and imagery, infographics have been a staple on social media sites in recent years due to their easily sharable format. Understanding the effectiveness of these informational tools,NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative has created a series of infographics offering quick-hit tidbits on today's sprinkler myths and the effectiveness of these devices. Our goal is for you to easily share these important points with your local public, decision makers, and others.


The new infographics include information on sprinkler installation costs, today's home fire problem, the truth about today's homebuilding materials, and why smoke alarms aren't enough to protect you from a fire.
