Hosted by NFPA sprinkler expert Matt Klaus, the 1/2 hour forums in the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition's booth address common myths about sprinklers, system options, installation requirements, and trade-up benefits for builders and developers, including:

  • street width reduction
  • increased street grades and building set-backs
  • increased hydrant spacing
  • longer dead-end streets
