Heading to NFPA's Conference and Expo in Vegas? Looking for a reason to escape the conference hall (other than to stroll the Strip)? In conjunction with the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) turning the big 2-0 this year, HFSC and NFPA are giving you the chance to view the power of fire during an off-site event. (For those not attending C&E, keep reading; this post has something for you, too.)
A burn demonstration is taking place on Tuesday, June 14 during NFPA's Conference showcasing two structures on fire--one with fire sprinklers and one without. These demonstrations are widely used by North American sprinkler advocates to underscore what little time you have to escape today's unsprinklered homes on fire. A shuttle bus will be leaving Mandalay Bay at 1:20 p.m. PST, departing from the Shark Reef Aquarium entrance (near the food court).
For those who can't make the burn or aren't attending the conference, take note: we'll be live-streaming the burn demo via Fabook live, which you can view on NFPA's Facebook page. Viewers will also have the ability to comment or ask questions in real time. The actual burn begins at 2 p.m. PST, but we'll be live streaming beginning at 1:45 p.m. PST. Check NFPA's Facebook page for any updates.
Hope to see you there--or online!
