The Western Massachusetts Fire Chiefs Association took a break from a recent meeting to underscore their support for home fire sprinklers. Each chief received a home fire sprinkler and were instructed to keep it in their turnout coat for quick access during news conference at the scene of a home fire. (View this blog on how to effectively promote home fire sprinklers at fire scenes.)
Front and center of this photo is Mary Regan, a Massachusetts fire chief and chair of the Massachusetts Fire Sprinkler Coalition. This group is diligently working to get requirements for home fire sprinklers passed in their state. Regan is also holding a copy of the special sprinkler issue of NFPA Journal.
