(California is the other.) You’ll also read about:


    • a magazine catered to the homebuilding industry instructing this group to pay more attention to fire safety at home, particularly home fire sprinklers

    • startling stats on home fires from NFPA’s new report

    • a New Hampshire fire marshal who let NFPA into his new home to document his sprinkler installation
