Between 2005 and 2015 in Rhode Island, there were approximately 7,200 home fires responsible for a series of deaths and injuries. Safety advocates there have taken steps to end these tragedies.


First, they recently formed the Rhode Island Fire Sprinkler Coalition. Second, the coalition is offering a free class on home fire sprinklers, a technology proven to significantly reduce the risk of dying in home fires. The class will cover provisions in NFPA 13D, Installation of Sprinkler Systems in One- and Two-Family Dwellings and Manufactured Homes. Attendees will learn the truth about fire sprinkler operation, including how to review and inspect multipurpose and standalone sprinklers. Continuing education units will be offered.
